Classroom Quilt Project

Way back in September, I started on a quilting journey with 106 fifth graders at my son's elementary school. Our goal was to make a large wall hanging with the school's motto on it by the end of the school year and present it to the principal as a surprise. We had to work around holidays, field trips, and the dreaded FSA testing (mandatory assessments) but we finally finished it.
I was so proud of the kids and it gave me so much joy to see how excited they would get when they would come into their art class to discover it was a sew day! You'll notice in the photo above that I'm nowhere to be seen. The quilt was presented in conjunction with the fifth grade awards ceremony and it was the one day that I was out of town for a wedding. That's why, on the last day of school, I got a photo with it and some of the kids.
