Now that the school year schedule is winding down, I'm finding a little more time in the mornings. The boys are off to school by 7:30 and without so many school volunteer hours, I am able to work in a few other projects here and there. Its a good thing because the garden continues to require much picking and weeding and staking.
But the quilts for the kindergarten teachers are also coming along.
My sweet neighbor Marci has been a huge help. Thanks friend! And its been fun to chat over coffee and listen to our dueling machines hum along.
One teacher's favorite color is orange and the other is partial to purple. I thought I'd like the orange quilt better, but there's just something about that purple that just frames those little masterpieces to nicely. I love how they are looking.
I'm not sure how it worked out, but both quilts have several rainbows in them. Mrs. Troyan's quilt has several squares devoted to the tree they've been watching all year. And bugs! Lots of bugs! And one little boy, Trenton, drew the entire class on his quilt square. So great!
Now...for a quilt sandwich and binding!
