|5th Grade Class Raffle Quilt is Finished! 51" x 59"|
I met with the school art teacher and discovered that our students had already made these fantastic abstract nature paintings earlier in the school year, so I borrowed the paintings, scanned them, and printed them onto specially treated 8 1/2" x 11" fabric sheets in my inkjet printer. Then I added batik "frames" around each one, the borders, and free motion quilting that was originally supposed to be very basic but ended up taking over a week to complete.
Anyway, I'm glad it's done and off my plate now so I can focus on other things again.
In other news, Lars got braces this week:
|Braces for Lars!|
We have the boys' violin and piano recitals tomorrow afternoon, and it's our turn to teach Sunday school so it will be another busy weekend. Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers and grandmothers out there!
I'm linking up with TGIFF -- Thank God It's Finished Friday, because that's EXACTLY how I'm feeling about handing that quilt over to the PTO!
