A longstanding tradition at our church is for the second graders to make quilt squares to commemorate their First Holy Communion. The finished quilts hang in our church hallway near the CCD classrooms. This year, I volunteered to make the quilt, and I'm so happy I get to help continue a tradition from my own childhood.
Here is Leah's quilt square:
It is 6" finished, so the letters are really tiny and started to fray as I stitched around them. Luckily it is only really obvious up close, and it is secure enough that I'm not worried about it.
Here is the progress on the whole quilt so far:
I still need to add a thin brown border all the way around. Then I can make the backing, baste, quilt, and bind.
