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

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.

Dr Suess Quotes Magic Touch & Her 5th Grade projectWonder if I would be able to fit it all in…

Off to find the fabric.

Choosing the right fabric makes all the difference. Here I took a Victorian fabric and pulled the gray and black to create Contemporary!

This is a Quilt with an incredible story. My first Controlled Chaos. My Favorite. It has been on my bed for many years…and it travels with me…Oh the places it has gone…If Quilts could talk…I would be in trouble for sure…LOL..

The fabrics I chose lend a Traditional feel, the subtle colors have looked tea stained since day one. Quilting cotton allows a comfort like none other. This quilt was made w/o batting (Summer Quilt) and has provided me w/a soft place to fall. It is Machine Quilted…
