    Panel quilt for preschool teacher

    I offered to make a quilt for my grandson's preschool teacher as an end-of-year gift. She's at least in her 50's, maybe 60's so I think she'll appreciate the "Dick and Jane" style of this panel. I practiced a tiny bit of FMQing on this panel - since I've done little but cross hatch, and ditch stitching this is quite a stretch. I do have a Flynn Frame that got me started, but the size of my machine really limits the use of that frame.

    Fabric: mostly Moda's American Jane "Recess" with a few blenders thrown in.

    Backing: Mary Engelbreit for Moda - Recipe for Friendship

    Quilting: echo quilted in panel and free form shapes in some blocks. (The blue block is supposed to be a flower!) Scallop stitch in borders.

    Binding: pulled over from the back

    Size: 46" x 62"

    Pattern: Sidelights by Mountainpeek Creations

    (I posted the top before I finished it so if you think you've seen this before - you have!)

    That's a fantastic quilt! And that is one adorable panel. I'm sure the teacher will treasure it.

    What a great gift for a teacher. You did a super job on it. Let us know how she liked it. Sure that she will love it. BrendaK
