Sunday School quilt
I am the Sunday School Director at my church and I have made a few VERY simple quilts over the years. I wanted to turn our fall craft into a quilt this year and hang it on an empty wall in the building.
My plan is to give each student a plain white square of fabric to decorate with their name and a picture they draw, etc. The issue is, it is for several classes in this building and there is a total of 50 students. I was hoping to make a lap size quilt approx 60x72, with simple squares and one or two binding/edges. I get more adventureous next year but I need to keep it VERY simple this year. I'm thinking 8" squares with 7 across and 9 down, which would leave room for a center area that I'm decorating with an iron on about Sunday School and the seam bindings. It also leaves me a few extra squares to decorate.
My question is, will this look too plain to just have decorated squares sewn together, with a center piece area and binding?
