... is not until July.
BUT I know what I want to do for my blocks. I am SO excited. And I have to document it now or I will never remember. So here it is...
I want to make a Numbers Quilt! :)
there are 6 people in my Hive, so that would be 12 blocks. I think a quilt that is 4 x 4 blocks square would be nice. (so it's square. I just like that shape better for this. I'll make up the extra blocks.) Anyway, I am going to ask each member to pick 2 numbers between 1 and 15 (I'll make the zero block) and make a block for that number. In each block I'll want the actual number (i.e. "10") and then that same number of something (i.e. ten fish).
How fun will this be?! I think my wee ones would LOVE to play on a blanket where they can see a whole bunch of different items and be able to count them! :) I love things that are fun AND promote learning too!
Some other notes to remember:
- only one block of each item - only one block of fishes, one of trees, cars, houses, etc.
- bright and colorful colors that are the basic colors - only primary and secondary colors. There can/should be multiple colors per block - that allow it. (the number 1 would be a bit harder to incorporate lots of colors.)
- maybe each person can pick a 1 digit number (1-9), and a 2 digit number (10-15), just to keep it even?! :)
I'll probably come back and edit this post if I think of more ideas. :) Now I can't wait until July!!
