Here’s my entry…but first a little history.
This is my fourth year having the tremendous opportunity to help out at the elementary school by making a quilt! My favorite way to “help”!
Every year each of the classes create a wonderful piece of art which is auctioned off the night of Open House.
The funds raised go directly to the classroom and the Educational Foundation at the school.
This is my last year at the elementary school. My youngest is moving on to middle school in the fall! So this was my last quilt to make for this annual event.
I had 31 kids artwork blocks to work with this year, so I had to be creative with the layout.
I’m happy with the layout and even happier that I got to use fabric I had on hand that I had received from an amazing seamstress that passed away last year. It was perfect!
I had fun with the quilting too, wavy lines and bubbles added to the whole feel of the quilt.
I’m sorta sad for this chapter of my life to end. I’ve been a mom at that elementary school for 12 consecutive years. But at the same time, I’m excited for what the future holds for my family. Two in high school next year: a senior! and a freshman. And my youngest starting middle school. I’m sure I’ll have many more years to help out by making quilts…I’ll make sure of it!
