DIY Operation Cooperation Classroom Quilt
I got this as a craft project for our VBS classes. I liked that it was something that all of the age groups could work on and we could bring them all together at the end. We bought two and are planning on putting them together for one giant wall hanging for our church.

Scouts loved this!
My Girl Scout troop decorated one of these "quilts" and entered in our local fair. They really enjoyed it! We used fabric paints and the girls tied all of the squares together in the order they wanted them. When we were done we disassembled it and each girl got to take home the squares they decorated. Nice project!

Love them so much I bought more. Great classroom project that first grade children can actually do without much adult assistance. Used as a Social Studies project to teach about Assembly Lines, Cooperation and Team Work.

I purchased this for my Brownie Troop to complete. Each of the girls got to make her square special because it was her own. They loved putting them together and seeing the final product hanging on the wall for all of their family and friends to see.

3rd Year using this!
This is the 3rd year that I have used this for our crafts for VBS! The kids love it and we display the quilt all year long in our Educational Building. The adults love seeing all the kids art work all year long and it makes a great keepsake for VBS every year!

Fun & Easy Teacher Gift
Bought this as a teachers end of year gift. Easy for the first graders to make and quality was good. I would only recommend that maybe the ties should be thicker. The ones they give are like shoe laces.They are functional just not very attractive. Teacher loved the gift.

Quilting Made Simple
This is the simpliest way to complete a quilting project for a novice. The finished project is absolutely beautiful and the children totally enjoyed the experience!

Got this project for our Girl Scout troop camp-in. What fun! Each girl painted/drew on her own square, easy to put together and it looked great! The only thing I would do differently, is maybe dye the squares first, as they are all white, and the girl's didn't want to color the entire square...other than that - it was easy, no mess and a great keep busy project!
