"Scrappy Little Fingers"

Last year my daughter's kindergarten was hosting a trivia night in order to raise money...I wasn't able to make the night out, so I decided to make a quilt and donate it to the trivia night as an auction item.
I had approached the teachers about my idea and they thought it was great.

So with the help of the teachers and the children, "Scrappy Little Fingers" was created....

Firstly I decided to use a Scrappy pattern from Helen Darfter... I then asked the children and teachers to do hand prints on the front panels and back of the quilt with their names printed underneath... I also got some of the children do a drawing in the middle of the centre blocks to add more creativity..(Don't you just love the way 4yrs old children draw)....And to make it a little more different, I added some fancy stitching and some gems....And bright colours for bright children.... :-)

The quilt went to auction and raised $250 and is hanging on the kindergarten's wall for everyone to see...
