I made this quilt with my son's 5th grade class. I went in and had them design the blocks with pieces of fabric that I had put fusible webbing on. We ironed on the designs and I took it home and sewed it together. This will be presented to the teacher as a gift for their last year in elementary school. It is 56/56. Thanks to ScrapHappy-Quilter for the suggestion on the border and banquopack for the quilt inspiration. I love the idea of a space to designate a border of the s
Here is my pillow for the Pillow Talk swap. It is a tree/bird in a pieced in circle surrounded by wonky stars. It is linen and scraps of other projects for the stars. I was going to do half squares, but when I made the stars I liked them so much I thought they would be better in the border. It is 20/20.
I went to my daughter's class and each of the students designed a square. I took the squares home and sewed them together. This time I wanted to sew them on point to make it a bit different. She liked orange/turquoise so I had the orange around the border to keep the turquoise in the middle.
This is the back of the quilt. I tied in the orange/turquoise here. These will be end of the year gifts for the teachers, from the students.
Ok... I made another quilt for my son's teacher. Some of the parents got wind of it and asked me to make one for this other teacher. I wanted to do it a bit different and did it on point. This is for my daughter's teacher...
I am going to be participating in the Doll quilt swap #8. This should be fun. These are all thing that I think are lovely. But partner, if you are reading this look at these as things that make me sing, but you make something that does that for you and I will love it!! Bright modern and different are all things that are ooo sooo cool. I am trying to decide what I will do for my partner. She does not comment much and hopefully I will see her style and mix it with something I have wanted to try.
