Auction Quilt Top : puzzle

The first of the four auction quilt tops is pieced. This one is for a preschool. The teachers come up with the plan for the kids, then hand over the squares to be turned into a quilt however I like. I like how it looks - small, from afar, like this.


Kind of cute with preschoolers I guess, but marker artwork isn't my favorite thing. I do like how the whirygiggles lock like puzzle pieces, mirroring their theme.

I think I'll free motion outline the kids' puzzles and stipple everywhere else.

I have one more kid-artwork quilt to do and the finial ticker tape blocks are coming home. Can't wait to show you that one!

Love it. How sweet. I would be surprised if the preschool itself did not bid on it to hang on a wall. I guess that would not be much of a fundraiser though.

Funny, my next quilt (for Ross) will be a whirlygig I think.

Looks great, and I like your idea of outlining the puzzle pieces and stippling the rest. Whirlygigs are really cool :)
