I have a some request about how we did the hands for this quilt. The hand prints were collected from family, friends, school teachers etc
We drew around the hands on paper - keeping then with a 20cm square (approx 8 "). If you daughter has many friends with big hands - a bit bigger would be better.
We then traced the hands onto double sided iron on (Visofix) ironed this onto the hand fabric (approx 8" square) . Cut it out, removed paper backing and ironed onto the backing square (approx 8.5 " square). I then zig zagged the edges and embroidered the names on each hand.
The embroidery was particularly slow. For speed you could make the hands out of a plain light coloured fabric and get people to sign their own hand print. I have done this on another quilt (no photo sorry). To do this you iron the visofix onto the hand fabric before taking it to people as it makes it stiffer. Ask them to trace and sign their hand print using permanent marker directly onto the fabric (not the paper backing)
