Today year 3/4 started their new topic to make a class quilt! This is a big adventure of us and we are all excited. With the help of Zoe we taught the children running stitch, cross stitch, back stitch, invisible stitch and how to hem. The children rose to the challenge and were eager to practice their new skills! I was so proud of them, lots of children were able to do all the stitches. Why not ask them to show you? In the afternoon we explored with different materials and stitching to think about our design. We thought what colours go together best, what fabrics, which stitch is best to use and what type of thread. This week we will plan our squares and then start to make them next week as I know the children are eager to start!
