Nesting Quilt crafts to make

I've been getting ready for upcoming library programs at Portland Public LibraryBaxter Memorial Library in Gorham, Maine, and others events. Here are some of the fun crafts we'll be making! They are all based on The Nesting Quilt.
I sewed squares of cotton print fabric (thank you, Grace!) to felt squares.
Kids can "stick" them onto a felt-covered board.

Precut 3" squares of paper in pretty prints can be glued onto a 9x9" square of construction paper to make a paper quilt.

Remember sewing cards? Kids can draw, and then "sew" a border with yarn.
Cardstock weight paper, pre-punched.

Dried pine needles make lovely nests. Glue into a cupcake paper, which is
glued onto a small paper plate. I found those cute wooden eggs here.

Two paper birds. One is a cut, fold and glue  together. The other is
easier for small hands. I precut the bird and wing shapes. Kids
can glue on the wings and the little feather.
