I've been working on sewing the strips together for the Teacher's Crayon Quilt. These are strips that the children selected as being their favorites when I went to the Great American Teach In the other day.
For the quilting I'm going to be quilting the students names onto their strips (hence all those bits of paper at the top of the flimsy). Currently I'm planning to find the center and mark each strip with my Sewline Pencil and then write in the name with the pencil before quilting it. I am considering using gold glitter thread for quilting the students names. I've never quilted with glitter thread before, but I think it would unite the crayon colors nicely so it's worth the try.
I don't think I will be working on this much more until after Thanksgiving. DD was firm well over a month ago that we always host Thanksgiving so hence we will again this year. What are your plans for Thanksgiving? I think perhaps the best thing would be to simply sit at the sewing machine and give thanks for finding this passion of quilting in which to bury myself in. ;-)
