Kindergarten quilt was a huge success

I presented the kindergarten quilt to the teacher yesterday and it was a huge success. She was in tears!! Very sweet to see the kids' reaction to seeing their art work put into a quilt. They all crowded around wanting to see where their signatures were or the picture!

I will tell you, though, that I was hugely disappointed to see that many of the signatures bled after being washed. I used permanent markers too!!  Ugh!!

I suppose I should have tested them before I had the kids sign them. Lesson learned!!

Now I have a couple of days at home to catch up!! 


  1. What a sweet moment! Such a big heart on your part. Teacher will cherish it for years.

  2. Oh, that will be loved and treasured.
    Just curious, did you heat set the blocks after they had been signed?

  3. Wonderful gift--am sure the teacher will treasure it

  4. Fantastic! I have had trouble with some "permanent" pens too. Pigma always works. I'm sure she didn't even notice! Good job!
