We had each of the children in Sarah's class draw a self portrait on a 6 1/2" square of white fabric and then color it. Some of the children did a fabulous job of following the instructions of doing their best work and making their person the focal point in the space. It was fun to watch the creativity come out in the children and their efforts to do their best.
As I pieced together the quilt top I had fun looking at each of the drawings again. I based the colorful color pallette from the fabric choosen for the backing of the quilt. I did not get a photo of it before I took everything to the quilter but will be sure to do another post when the quilt comes back to be bound. But here is a look at the top:
My inspiration for the layout of this quilt came from this quilt from the Moda Bakeshop. And I think it was the perfect pick.
