Tomorrow morning, I'll be speaking about quilts for circle time in The Boy's primary class. I'm excited to share my passion for quilting with twenty 3-6 year olds. Basically, I'm going to show them the stages of making a quilt. Here's my pile for show and tell.
I'll start by passing around a few pieces of fabric.
Then I'll show them some completed quilt tops. (I realize now there's a missing step in there... I'll add some strips and squares to my pile for how to get to a completed top.)
Next I'll pass around some pieces of batting and show them the three layers that make a quilt a quilt: top, batting and backing.
I have lots of samples of different types of quilting (thank you, Leah Day). (If I pull my t-shirt quilt off my bed then I'll even have a tied quilt.)
Finally, a piece of binding and some completed quilts, wall hanging to queen sized, including my Ribbit Quilt and The Purple Quilt.
I'm also bringing one of my favorite children's books to read to them, The Quiltmaker's Gift.
I prepped a couple little quilt sandwiches to leave for the students to do some hand quilting on as well.
Linking up with Anything Goes Monday, hosted at The Quilt Yarn this week for Stitch by Stitch.
