I was asked by my son's Kindergarten teacher to make a quilt for our school auction. Each child had a square that they decorated and I embroidered their name on the square and then pieced all of them together. It was not my design, but I did get to pick the colors and I was happy with the primary colors. I do not consider myself a quilter and I was a little worried about completing a project that so many people would see and maybe bid for, but I was fortunate enough to bounce some ideas off my neighbor who is a real quilter and she gave me direction on the quilting and binding parts. I love how it turned out. I was even pleased with the quilting, which I have traditionally had problems with on applique quilts.
Here it is laying flat on my work table.

I loved the red binding!

Here it is in the classroom, hanging!
I hope it brings in some money, but since it is so specific to our class I have a feeling that it will just be me bidding on it. I would love to see it in a good home, but I don't mind that home being mine!
