Umbrella Man

While I wait for counters and rest of the appliances to arrive I started a new project.

I volunteer at our local elementary school. I work with a class of third graders and teach them PowerPoint. I was walking down the hall just before Christmas and was looking at all of the children's artwork hanging in the hall. My eye caught the following little watercolor by a second grader. I fell in love with it. (note the small head) The little umbrella man just cried out to be turned into an Art Quilt. I got both the child's permission and his parents to use his piece of artwork and have begun to work on it. The original piece was about 8.5 X 11. My piece is about 16 X 20. will post when it is completed.
