On-Line Quilt Festival II





Amy aka Park City Girl had a wonderful idea last Spring for an on-line quilt festival. I posted my Quilt Maker's Gift quilt for that one and I'm excited to participate and view everyone's quilts once again.


This is a quilt I made last Spring for my daughter's kindergarten class. I loved Eric Carle's books when I taught preschool years ago and I was excited to use his gorgeous fabrics for a quilt. My daughter Kelly gives each child a turn to lay on the quilt at rest time as long as they take their shoes off. It was a very coveted honor in last year's class. This Fall I'm in the process of making another quilt with Eric Carle fabric based on his book Brown Bear, Brown Bear. Hopefully it will be ready for her class Teddy Bear picnic on October 16th.
