Hearts for ValentinesJanuary 17, 2006
I designed this project for a hand quilting class at a homeschool co-op starting in late January. I expected the students to be 4th and 5th graders so I tried to make this first project simple and quick to finish. It includes some piecing, some applique and a few embroidery stitches; the Running Stitch, the Blanket Stitch, the Lazy Daisy and Spider Web Rose. And I thought that it would make a good gift for the students to give away.
Well, I just found out that the students in the class are 7th through 9th grade… just a bit older than I expected. So now I need to decide if this is too simple…too juvenile… for these middle schoolers.
