What materials did you use? This project grew out of a collaboration between me and a friend who is principal of an elementary school in East Harlem, NYC. A former school employee was affected by Hurricane Sandy. She has two children, a boy and girl, ages 9 and 12. I prepared muslin squares for the students at the school and the art teacher provide guidance and fabric paint. The students had interviewed the recipients to learn of their hobbies, favorite things. After the squared were colored in, I pieced them with a one inch sashing and put two borders on. I quilted them with a flannel backing so they would be soft.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The squares looked much better pieced and quilted than they did individually.
