Grade 3 Art Quilt Project

My son attends an integrated arts school, so art of all kinds is used in nearly every aspect of learning.  I offered to do a class project with his Grade 3 class this year for their Art block in May and June.

Stage 1 was learning about quilts, selecting a theme and choosing blocks to make. 



Stage 2 was making the blocks (piecing/sewing and fabric coloring). 


Stage 3 was cutting the sashing and setting squares. 


Stage 4 was piecing the quilt. 


Stage 5 was quilting.

The children were active in every stage but Stage 5 (partly because of time constraints).

It's all finished now, and it's GORGEOUS! They are so proud!







I'm going to publish a series of posts describing each stage of the project, because I learned a lot doing this, and will likely want to do something like this again in the future.


It was LOTS of fun (and lots of work) but the kiddos LOVED doing it and were a great group to work with!  What great memories!  The finished quilt will hang in a common area of the school.

The Creations

I love making beautiful things, and my usual method of creation is quilting. I have on display here some of my projects, every one of them as unique as the individual who received it. Enjoy browsing! If you see something you like, for yourself or for a gift, let me know. And please tell your friends, too! The more the merrier!
