Preschool Quilt

My mother-in-law teaches preschool at our church and earlier this year we decided to make a quilt that will be auctioned off in some way!!  I found this Bible verse: Psalm 96:12 and immediately knew what to do!  I had each of the preschool kiddos sign and color a leaf then I turned it into this!  Lots of applique and lots of quilting!  I had a lot of fun making this and really enjoyed quilting it!! What do ya'll think?  I hope it raises a lot of money for the school!

Since we're in STL I had to put a Cardinal bird on it!

My Nephew and Mother-in-laws leaves. 

Cute backing right?  I saw it and HAD to get it for the backing...how perfectly preschool is it?!?!

I quilted a caterpillar in the tree


Close up on the quilting! I did a little pebble quilting which I love!

Gotta have grass!

That is a darling little quilt. I hope it brings in a good price. I have just finished a quilt with signatures on leaves. I know how hard it was to get good signatures from adults so my hat is off to you to get them from kids.
