What we decided to do was to print off templates for each of the nature topics. Then we traced them onto an ironable Heat and Bond, ironed them onto the material, cut it out, and then ironed them again onto a 10x10 inch square. We had finished several squares by early spring, but then as life got busy we did not have an opportunity to work on them for awhile. The last several weeks have been cold or rainy,, so we have started working on the quilt squares again.
Alex decided he did not want to work on his (he got some model cars for Christmas he has been putting together), but Lily and Christian were ready to get them finished. We finished all 12 squares yesterday for both quilts. Our 12 squares are: butterfly, fish, flowers, white tail deer, bird, bat, snake, frog, arrow heads, bee, ladybug, owl.

Lily wanted to get hers sewn together. She was very excited to get to help use the sewing machine.
