    This is a quilt that really has a long life ahead of it - like a previous poster said, it can be used for playing cars and the colors are great for either a boy or girl and it's not age-specific. Very nice job!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    The teacher was touched by the gift. My son is so funny, "He wanted to hug me, Mom!" in his most mortified voice ;-)

    DebraK,

    Did you piece in rows or make 4 patches and build on them? You certainly did a nice job!

    Thank you! I wasn't very organized. I drew the quilt on graph paper, then started putting the colored squares on the wall. The white pieces range in length. I built the quilt in sections, cutting as I went along. It was like doing a puzzle. I took my time and had lots of fun with it.

    I was thinking the same thing...this is so cool...I may make one with gray instead of white. Also thinking making a farm theme...brown maze - animal trails.

    I agree with you - pictures really don't do our quilts justice. Your quilt looks great - I bet it's just gorgeous in person. Thanks for sharing!!

    I've made so many puzzle baby quilts. Now think I'l do this pattern instead. Found your "inspiration" on the web. Tu for posting.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    What a wonderful baby quilt - I adore scrappy quilts! The pattern will be a great imagination builder as the baby gets older. How awesome it is that your son is so eager to give it as a gift!

    How nice of you and your son! Most teachers can't be beat and really do their job well. They will know they are truly appreciated.

    This teacher has had a positive impact on my son's school experience, so it was no problem for me to fulfill my son's wishes to give his teacher a gift to celebrate an important part of the teacher's life.

    His teacher would sooo hate my grammar ;-)
