Kindergarten Handprint ABC Quilt

 It's done!

 Just in time for the Ice Cream Social on Wednesday at school.  The kids do a little play and sing songs for their parents.  This will be their backdrop then we are giving it to a special person to hang in her future classroom.

I used a Kona jelly roll for the sashing.  The white is a white on white dot.  The kids hand prints were made with fabric paint and decorated with fabric markers and fabric pastels.

T is for turtle, U is for Umbrella, V is for Very Hungry Caterpillar, X is for xylophone, Y is for yellow sun, Z is for zebra

Q is for quilt (of course!), R is for rainbow, S is for sunflower, W is for world

L is for ladybug, M is for monkey, N is for nest, P is for penguin, Q is for  quilt, R is for rainbow, T is for turtle, U is for umbrella, V is for Very Hungry Caterpillar

J is for jellybeans, K is for kitty, N is for nest, O is for owl

B is for bee, C is for chick, F is for fish, G is for garden

A is for apple, B is for bee, D is for dinosaur, E is for elephant, F is for fish

I meandered around the little animals.  It took me about an hour and a half.  Amazingly, no puckers or bubbles on the back to pick out!  Yay! It took five bobbins of off white thread.  It think it may be the largest quilt I have machine quilted (or maybe the rainbow quilt last year is about the same size).

I used the same black polka dot on the letters and the binding.  I sewed the binding on the front, ironed it over to the back, and sewed in the ditch on the front to catch it on the back.
