2017 Classroom Quilt: Kid's Art

This week was quilt week at school and the kids were soooo excited!
They traced selected pictures using their pencils: 
 The also used fabric markers to color. 

Now hindsight being what it is, next time I will have the kids use a black sharpie 
to outline their pictures, as the fabric markers DID smudge a little.

All in all though, I think these are going to make a fun classroom quilt.  I think it would also be an inspiring way to greet my new class in the Fall. I can hang it at the entrance of the classroom during Open House, as the quilt illustrates many of the themes we learned about in Second Grade this year.
Oh we'll definitely enroll it in the County Fair this summer! 
But for now, it looks like it's time for me to get busy sewing this one together. But as busy as life has been this month, I'm going to have be very intentional at getting it sewn into a flimsy before the kids leave for summer. (Luckily I still have two weeks to ahead of me.) As always, thanks for stopping by and  for especially cheering on our classroom projects this month. You guys are the best!

  5. Your students did a great job with their outlining and coloring! Will you add sashing and borders to this? I really like the idea of using it to inspire next year's students!

  16. That is SO great! I never thought of using a sharpie on a quilt instead of a fabric marker! But now that I think about it, Sharpies are permanent markers!
