They decided to put a picture of the globe in the middle and flags from their ancestor's countries all around it. Myself and three other mom's helped out with this project. One of the mom's cut out all the globe components, I sewed the globe together, and another mom sewed the globe to the background fabric.
Sorry this picture is sideways! In class, the students cut out felt and handstitched their flags together. Then they embroidered their names under their flags. The teacher contacted our school photographer who graciously allowed us to use their images on our quilts. I printed out each child's picture on fabric, cut them out and then attached them to the quilts underneath their flags. The fabric I purchased was supposed to be able to be ironed on, but it was peeling off so I just tacked down each photo with "real" stitches to make sure they would stay put.
Here is a picture of the finished front. The front was finished before school ended in June and all the kids were totally thrilled! I think this is a great quilt - imagined by and mostly made by the kids - love it, love it, love it!! Another mom put on the backing and binding over the summer - perfect don't you think?
