My daughter is a devoted preschool teacher and the name of her classroom is "The Penguin Room". She asked me if I could make an interactive weather chart to help facilitate the coordination, observation and manipulative skills of her little ones using buttons and buttonholes. I was delighted by her request and ready for a challenge! She had it only a short time before she told me that her students had so much fun with it that she needed holiday outfits too! The faculty and staff thought it was a wonderful classroom activity for circle time and everyone encouraged me to share this project. But don't limit yourself to a classroom setting! This would be fun to make for a child's room or play room! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY A basic knowledge of quilting and sewing is all you need. This is a great project for anyone who loves detail work! SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The finished size of the wall quilt is 34in. x 42in.
