Kindergarten Handprint Quilt--Finished

Let me just say that a little OCD can be a beautiful thing.
Remember when I started this quilt back the first part of November for my youngest's kindergarten class?

Here is the finish

Once I got the idea on how to put this quilt all together it just sort of ran away with me and I didn't want to work on any of my other projects.  (And there are plenty of others...)

Thrifted striped sheet for the backing.

On opposing corners I had to make an additional 9 patch because there were only 22 kids. 
C. kept telling me I needed to go get 2 more handprints, but I like how this worked out in the end.

Raided the stash for the binding fabric.
Love how it worked with the fabrics, and there was JUST enough
to piece together so that I didn't have to go buy anything else.

Later this week I'll go take a pic with all the kids and their teacher.

Details:
  • Cut 8" white blocks--22
  • Cut 3" squares for 9 patch blocks---26 blocks total using 236 - 3" squares.
  • 6 blocks across and 8 down.
  • Added 3" cut strips for outside border in marbled blue.
  • Finished dimensions: 50 1/2 by 64 1/2 inches.
