My Summer Quilt Project....

Happy Monday everyone, at least I hope it is a happy one for you.  I finished my summer quilt project and wanted to share it with you.  Last summer I made a 50th  Anniversary Redwork quilt for my parents, which you can see Here.  This year the quilt project was for a larger group, our new elementary school.  I made it for the office.  I had discussed making one last year with the principal(she liked the idea), but I never got around to it, so I thought I better get my rear in gear this summer and do it.  I'm taking it up there this afternoon as a surprise, I really hope they like it.
They say the phrase "kindness counts" in the school so I thought it would be nice for the quilt.

It's all machine sewed, except for the words and the binding.  I wasn't sure what kind of quilting to do on it, in the end, I chose just to outline the flowers as you can see on the back.
I made a label for it and thought this fabric was perfect for a school :)
I don't consider myself a quilter and I know this is far from perfect, but I think it came out pretty cute.  Some day I will take a quilt class and learn the proper way to do things instead of my learn as I go technique.

Ok, I'm off to the school, cross your fingers that they like it!
