Classroom Quilt-top
Additional fee: 
$2 per student for a total of $3 per student

A favorite since it was first introduced, this session invites each student to draw a picture on 10″ square paper using fabric crayons. We then take the paper squares back to Kaleidoscope, iron the images onto a fabric square and stitch together a classroom quilt-top that we mail to your school within 3 weeks.  Some schools have auctioned the completed quilt-top as a fundraiser, while others have given the quilt-top to their school as an end-of-year gift. Whatever your goal, know that the finished art will bring smiles to all!  (If you prefer to not have the squares assembled into a quilt-top, just let us know.)
