The kindergarten project continues and I am in that blissful place where it seems like this project might actually meet my expectations of time and effort (instead of exceeding them as is normal). (It would be kind not to remind me of this optimism once the work begins again and I am again mired in details.) Sure the ironing time was a little extreme, but now the shirts are finished and are ready for delivery on Thursday. The quilt pieces have been cut, and the template for the quilt top is ready for the kinders. My plan is to have each kinder place their pre-cut fabric on the template exactly where they want it to go. Then I will bring the pattern home, with fabric pinned in place, and sew the tops together. Tonight I am making my paper patterns for the words that will adorn the center of the quilts. I'm having this delirious moment where I think I might actually get the words appliqued in place before Thursday, but that might be pushing things too far.
