How to create a whole school quilt hanging

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Fauziaafzal, Dec 28, 2011.

  1. Hi there,
    I hope eveyone has had a good Christmas! I was wondering if someone could help me? My school would like to make a quilt hanging as a display to celebrate the school being opened for 25 years! I have been asked to look into it. I am not really sure where to begin. Has anybody made one and if so would you mind sharing your idea?
    Many thanks
     
  2. I am planning on doing this too, I have made a quilt- it's easy! Basically you sew squares or other shapes together and then quilt it. It is mathematically challenging if you use shapes other than squares! I am thinking about using iron on photos, seeing names, fabric paints etc etc Pretty much in the beginning stages so would also love to hear what others have done.

    I made a hanging with aclass who each made a square using batik. You could get each class to take a theme e.g. curriculum areas, outdoors, children... and use a technique appropriate to the age group. Either each child could make a square or they could do them in groups. The killer is sewing them together. Get parents involved! Good luck. Sounds a lovely project.
