One Good Thing A Day – Project Day 25 – English Class Quilt

I had a lesson to prepare for the letter “Q” and from what I found online, it’s a letter that many people have trouble with and choose just to hand the children printouts -I’m not a huge fan of giving little ones printouts, so I decided to plan something fun and creative for the kids.

I made a felt quilt *^_^*

I purchased one large felt sheet with a few packs of pre-cut colourful squares.

After arranging and sewing the squares, they looked like this.

Then, using children’s pastel crayons, I decorated the white side.  *The crayons will be given to the children so they can decorate one square by themselves*

As I always love to use two shades for words, I outlined with a darker shade and coloured the words in with a lighter one….

…decorated it a little more for fun….

…placed it outside in, sewed along the sides and flipped it back out.

I purposely left the bottom edge open, so i can show the children the inside…

like this!  My kids are always so curious about the materials I make for them that they have to hold and observe  them.

I’ll see how it goes this Sunday!

    Great project. I’m going to try incorporating my class’ felt sewing projects into a giant quilt to display on our door.
