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.


  1. love the quilts xx the trees looked as if they fit the bill xx lol x

  2. The quilts are lovely. Makes me itch to stitch again

  3. The quilts look great. I just watched an episode of "The Quilt Show" on painting fabric and it reminded me of our visit and you teaching us how. The kids must love visiting.
