A Preschool Coloring Quilt

This is a quilt that a class of preschoolers painted pictures for.  They hired my daughter and I to make a quilt of it and put it together.  My daughter, who is a seamstress, took on the sashings and borders of the quilt while I quilted it and bound it.  She learned that in quilting you use 1'4" seams.  She would have gone to 1/2" as upholsterers use.  But no, we keep our seams small.  She did a great job.

 I  think the pictures are very fun to look at.

 The quilt was sold at an auction that the school held.


  1. What a cute project - nicely quilted. Hope it did well for the auction.

  2. What a great collaborative project, Elaine. Your quilting is gorgeous!

  3. The pictures are great! The teal sashings and red cornerstones compliment them so well. Lovely quilting


I love hearing from you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
