I made this appliqué quilt for my son’s high school fundraising auction last spring, and submitted it to the San Francisco Quilt Guild 2013 Show under the “First Time Quilt Show” category – and won an Honorable Mention! This is the fourth or fifth of such quilts I’ve made for school auctions using copied handprints of students, a single classroom, or in this case, the high school staff. A generous group of parents bought it for the school where it will live displayed in the teacher’s lounge. I loved making this quilt and felt nostalgic about it when I got it to bring to the show. I have to make one for myself – probably handprints of my family. I’ll post a tutorial for how to make it in the future. I think it’s a great design to feature different people and personalities. It was fun making jewelry for some of the hands!
