I have finally finished the school quilt! I am so relieved that I finished on time and that it looks as good as it does! It has a few funky waves but I am the only one who really cares :)
I think the heavy quilting adds interest and dimension--plus it covers up the puckering situation from early on.
I'm not sure I ever fully explained what this project is. I wanted to create a celebration quilt for our school's 50th anniversary celebration/fundraising dinner on May 7. Each child and teacher in the school drew their face on a fabric head. I attached them to the quilt and sewed on the correct hair. I am going to ask my dad to help me build a frame to attach the quilt to and hang it in the school. There you have it!
Here are the stats:
Number of heads on the quilt: 140
Number of hours to complete: 100
Number of spools of thread used: 10
This quilt finish qualifies me to be entered in AmyLouWho's sew and tell giveaway! Did you finish anything THIS WEEK that you could enter?
