Here's a photo of a Picture Play Quilt I made for our elementary school's silent auction. (The adorable model is our 5-year-old.)
The parents in the class all sent in novelty fabric. (I got to keep the extras!) Also, the students (3rd graders) used fabric crayons and made squares with the letters of the alphabet, numerals 1 through 10, and the eight color words.
Thanks for the clever idea with the best interest of the kids in mind.
