I have noticed recently that my parents really have the "grandparents syndrome." They love spending time with all 5 of their grand kids and are always thinking up fun activities or gifts to get for all of them. When we were at Quilt Market back in May, we all fell in love with the adorable fabric line Color Me by Michael Miller. This fabric is designed so children (or adults) can color the fabric in and make something out of it.
The first thing my mom thought of was placemats. She used Carter as the tester for this since it seemed to keep him busy at the shop. For this project she had him use washable markers so he can reuse his placemat at different meals. I cannot wait to see all 5 of the kids color their placemats next time we are all together.
I wonder what the next great idea will be that we come up with for the kids to do with this fabric. If you are a grandparent or parent- this is a really fun fabric line for you to enjoy with your kids. What ideas do you have to do with this fabric? We would love to see all of your great ideas- please send us pictures!

We have been having a blast the last few months with Jackie Kunkel for the 2015 Technique of the month. Here is a sneak peak of a few of the color combinations being created by our students.
