Here is a fun and interesting project that will create lasting memories for a bunch of kids! Lissa Collins Alexander of Moda Lissa
created this quilt with an ambitious group of three to five year old kids, using their dreams as quilt blocks. Perhaps you know a group of youngsters for whom you would love to preserve memories like this; a class group, a church group, or just relatives who could look at an heirloom like this twenty years from now and see how they did! More from Lissa:
"I had the most fun over the weekend. A friend called me a few weeks ago. She was standing in Joann's telling me how she had volunteered to make a quilt to raffle as their big charity fundraiser. The first thing I said was get out of there and get over here
"I will say she had no idea what she was doing but knowing Katie that would not stop her. We went through the process and created a game plan. She was armed and ready with a layer cake, fabric marker and a huge bundle of determination and patience
"Oh I left out that this is a preschool class with 3-5 year olds. The theme of the project, What do I want to be when I get older? I love this theme, it wasn't, what do I want to be when I grow up, because after all, do any of us really ever grow up?
