Last week mini Edamay's class teacher Mrs Phillips asked if I would be able to sew together 25 fabric rectangles that the children in Eagle class (aged between 6-9 years) had created. The aim was to form a wall hanging. I of course agreed as projects such as this are my favourite!
The children in Eagle class had each created a piece of bold coloured fabric. They made the designs by blocking out sections of the fabric with a flour & water mixture whilst painting the rest in bright pink & blue. This explains why the mini Edamay had blue fingers for the best part of last week!
So last Sunday afternoon (with mini Edamay as my helper) we sat in the garden and stitched the 25 fabric rectangles together. We did this in a random order apart from her fabric being sewn next to her 'best friend's'. I loved looking at each piece of fabric with each piece being as striking & unique as the next.
