Lap Quilts from Painted Fabric

 At the beginning of the school holidays I looked after 2 foster children and two grandies  for a couple of days, so I needed to keep them busy.  I got the 10 and 7 and 5 year olds to paint fabric which I planned on making into a quilt for them.  I would have got them to draw pictures on the fabric BUT when I broke my ankle I could not have them again. I have now finished the quilts fir the 2 foster children and they have been delivered. I am pleased with the result I hope they like them to.

We also made Christmas Trees which they all enjoyed eating when they had finished making them.
