I don’t think I ever shared this quilt! It was a gift for our preschool teacher at the end of the school year last May.
Just like the quilt I made for my Grandma, we used Pentel Fabric Pastels for the artwork. The kids love using these pastels – they go on smooth and bright! (And, they still look bright coming out of the washer!)
I traced a variety of nature pictures onto 10″ muslin squares with a black pastel and heat-set the black outline with my iron. The muslin squares also had a piece of freezer paper ironed on to the back for stability. Since we had a small preschool class, each child chose and colored two squares. I had all the kids sign their names with a fabric marker for the center block.
It’s not too early to start planning and working on an end-of-the-year teacher gift, especially a big project like a quilt. I really need to have my girls help make one for me!
