quilt is done! Now I can watch Glee again.

Yeah, seriously, I wouldn't let myself go to the library and check out any past episodes until it was done...I'm a slave driver.    It's all done!  I submitted the online form for it to be added to the school's auction at the end of the month and I'm sending it to school with Bee tomorrow.  I'm just pretty much glad to have it done. 

It really came together pretty quickly, especially considering how BIG it turned out to be.   If I remember right, it's like 55x66.  There are 17 kids in her class (lucky teacher!) and the teacher added her hand print as well.  I needed two extra squares to fill in all the boxes, so I just used some extra fabric and made little 'log cabin' squares to fill in.    Here's a previous post about it that talks a little more about the construction.

Bee took these pictures for me.  That frustrates Lou.  I've tried to let him, he's just not ready to play with the good camera.

The idea for this quilt came from this sweet one I saw at Helping Little Hands.
