quilted yurt in forest

IMG_0836We are quilting a yurt to use as a classroom for our forest preschool program.  We have constructed a 15ft yurt in the forest and then, with the children, watching the four seasons unfold around us.  With each season we will make one quilted wall panel – so that, in the end, we will have a beautiful external wall depicting the four seasons in our forest (with spaces in between for the windows and door).

The end design will be inspired by observational drawings by the children, discussions about the forest around us and my own quirky and playful design aesthetic!  The children will be involved throughout the design process, watching and giving input as the design evolves.
