When I grow up I want to be...

One of the services that we provide at Great American Quilt Factory is making photo transfers-usually from photos, but this time from drawings. Lenora Chavez made this quilt from her daughter's and classmates drawings at St. John's Lutheran School, in Denver. The kids are 7 and 8 years old and they had to illustrate what they would like to be when they grow up.

Some of their answers depicted doctor, veterinarian, paleontologist, spy, detective, dentist, and pet store owner. Lenora pieced the quilt together (her very first quilt). Doesn't she look happy?

The quilt will be auctioned off for a school fundraiser. I hope it brings in lots of money and I hope it goes home with one of the lucky artists. Thank you for sharing your first quilt with us, Lenora!

Happy stitching,

Lynda and Nancy
