My girl's kindergarten teacher had the kids work on the most interesting, creative, and beautiful projects this past school year. When they were studying Eric Carle, they did this art project based on his book Papa Please Get the Moon for Me.
I was there volunteering the day they started this, so I got to help the kids paint the blue/white/blue stripes -- it was fun!
This was such a neat art project (definitely my favorite!), so I decided to make a wall hanging for their teacher's room. Here's how it turned out:
I pieced the blue solid strips fairly randomly, and used a wavy line setting for the quilting. Then I used machine applique to attach the ladder, girl, stars and moon.
Here are Lexi & Holly, holding up the finished quilt,
trying to look fancy with their pinkies held high in the air. :-)
