q is for quilting

we’ve quilted before, but this year set it up as a “quilting circle.” it was an interesting concept for some preschoolers to work in their laps rather than on the floor or at a table.

we had plastic canvas, big needles and embrodiery floss (thank you, thrift shop).

then it was sewing time. up and down, up and down, up and down.

we also made paper quilts…layering paper and adding a Q shape afterwards. we looked at photographs of quilts, read their names and decided that what we made were definitely “crazy quilts.
