Brody is expected to arrive next month. His room is based on a giraffe theme. This will be the center panel of his quilt. I used fabric paint to create the images and it does not make the fabric stiff. It is super. Will show finished quilt later.
A 5th grade reading class at Oakland Elementary School where I teach art had just completed reading a book about Harriet Tubman. The students were given fabric squares and examples of the patterns that were used as codes. They colored the cloth with fabric markers. I have sewn all their squares together to make the top of the quilt. I still have to get batting and backing. Then the quilting will begin.
