Magic Touch & Her 5th Grade Project (Part 1)

2014 marks my 16th year of volunteering in Perkiomen Valley School District, helping with the 5th Grade Quilt Project. Previous years can be found at  Magic Touch & Her Community Service. This year I will be doing posts on the process for The Schwenksville Elementary School Quilt. Part 1 details the design process.

It all starts with a Theme.

Schwenksville Elementary 2014: Dr Seuss

Class Count: 4 classes, averaging 24 Students each

Inspiration:

The Plan:

This is the (rough) sketch I did to design the quilt. I think we can do it!

The fabric.

Dr Seuss Fabric @ Joann

RJ Reynolds Fabric has a Dr Seuss series which Joann Fabric carries. Now to locate it in a store near me…

This years quilt will be an Art Quilt. The students will be using their artistic talents to draw on a square, or triangle, which will be 1/2 of their block. They can chose from their favorite Dr Seuss book: a quote, a character, or a title. I always look forward to seeing their finished block…

If I do a Block, this quote would be my choice.

Off to find the fabric.
