So, I went to the store again... on a quest for some cute material-----which has not been easy to find lately. I settled on this, orange and turquoise, and I was really nervous about it. We decided instead of tying the quilt, to do a rag (because it would be cheaper). This meant, in order for the students to be involved, they would have to sew on the muslin square. Mom assured me they would be able to do it. I was VERY reluctant. Imagine---sewing---25 needles---25 needy, whiny, needy students sewing---at the same time!!!! Yeah---I was not very excited to do it!!! I have to say--it wasn't all that bad and the kids did okay---the top of the square look really good, but the bottoms definitely give it character. They actually liked doing it, a lot because they love her so much. I think it turned out really CUTE!!! I'm putting it in a fun basket with picnic style treats. I hope she likes it.
