    My 9 year old has two teachers, and both of them had babies this year. His regular teacher had a girl and his SPED teacher had a boy right before Christmas. I finished the quilting on the boy quilt today. Now it needs bound and have the label slapped on. He's not ever asked me to do anything before, so I was definitely up for the job. I named them "....and everything nice" and "....and puppy dog tails".

    This was attempt 2 and 3 at FMQ. I am actually fairly happy with how they turned out, but my machine is DEFINITELY too small to attempt it again. The girl quilt is 30 x 40. but the boy quilt is 45 x 60 and too much for my little Janome. I quilted hearts and stars in the girl quilt, and just stars in the boy quilt because they are SOOOOO much easier. So there is a star in each large blue patch, and an overall scribble/stipple wavy thing going on for the overall affect.

    These quilts are special for my little boy, and I've had a lot of fun doing them. I like the pattern so much more using just 4" strips instead of bigger ones when I did the twin size.

    I cannot take credit for the labels. I have a book of iron ons called 50 Nifty Iron on Labels. I doubt I'll ever use them all. I really do not care for the iron on process. It always bleeds through the label material. Lasts about 3 transfers or so. I like to put them up against the window and trace them. Then I can use whatever colors instead of just black.

    My son is really happy to see them. I'll be binding the boy one this weekend. I use the 5 step process in the tutorial section. It's excellent!

    As a former elementary teacher, I have to tell you that your gifts will be treasured. I still have baby blankets made for my son....37 yrs. ago. I also have a sweater and many ornaments made by parents or students. They have a great deal of sentimental value to me. When a parent takes the time to honor the teacher in this way...well, it's just wonderful! Be sure to include a note telling how much you appreciate the teacher's work with your child. That's the most heartwarming gift in the world. Teachers need to be appreciated.
