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.

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.
