I used the same print I had used for my son's QAYG rainbow quilt, as I thought the bright colours on a black background would help tie all together. Now I am not sure it matters as the repeated use of the same scraps helps. It was interesting to see the variety of colours and prints the kids were drawn to. The girls were definitely mad for pink and purple....as the mother of two boys it was a miracle that I had sufficient!
The teacher was especially excited when she realised that it was two sided quilt. When I was joining the blocks I tried to make sure that the same fabrics were not touching, but I didn't worry about which way they faced. I just have to add a label and its done. The kids are voting on a charity to donate the quilt to, after it is shown at assembly and the schools Art show next weekend.
I don't think I would make a good quilt teacher of adults, but I would certainly be prepared to teach the kids again, it was fun.
Happy quilting Sue SA.
