What materials did you use? I used 100% cotton from Jo Anns for the top, shashing, border, and binding and a purchsed sheet of cotton/polyester for the backing. The batting is 80%cotton/20% polyester.

What are you most proud of? I was very worried about making a quilt. This is my second quilt (the first one was made in a class) and I really wanted it to be special - something the students would be proud of and something the parents would want to bid on. I think, even with some errors, that I have accomplished what I set out to accomplish and that feel great!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try not to be a perfectionist and just jump right in. This is something I always forget, but keep telling my kids. I need to follow my own advice more often because this was truly and enjoyable project.

This would be a great idea to do for a student teacher once they finish. I love it! I hope that the parents at the auction think so too! :)

Hope you raise lots of money for the school with your gift of time and love. Great idea!
