    There is a custodian at school who takes exceptional care of me...always has hot water during the day for my tea, saves the crossword puzzle in the paper for me and always lets me know when there are 'goodies' in the faculty room. I though a nice way to show appreciation was to make a quilt for her as a gift for her new great granddaughter.....no charge....(one hand washes the other!)

    Pattern is of my own design - thought I am sure there are others who have the same design style

    Wow, I really like it . Anyone that goes the 2nd mile like that should be told or shown that their actions are appreciated.

    Beautiful quilt. I was always told to be nice to the school custodian, too. Sounds like she was good to you.

    From what I hear, pink and brown are the latest baby colors!

    I have been in the school system for 27 years. Always was encouraged to make friends with the custodian first, the secretary second....have always kept that policy and it has certainly afforded kindness that others in the building just never seem to get!

    Not only is your quilt fabulous, but what a wonderfully generous way to show your appreciation. As in nursing, those who clean are such an important part of our team!!!

    Very nice! A lady who works where I have my evening tea is wanting me to make her a baby quilt, she had a girl and her colors are pink/brown.

    Very nice quilt. I'll bet she will be tickled pink (and brown) over it. I would be. Great job! Thanks for sharing.

    Awe! Your quilt is so adorable. Love the colors, fabric print, and quilt layout for this gift.

    On a second note, your generosity for this gift really hit home for me. My mom used to be a custodian. She had a great reputation with the teachers, even the ones that their classrooms were not her responsibility. My mom would do extra for them too. Her co-workers did not have the same relationships with their teachers, but they also did not put out the extra effort that my mom did. My mom had me make gifts for her teachers and other coworkers whenever she wanted to give them something handmade, usually tote bags, Christmas tree skirts, etc. On behalf of my mom....Thank you for recognizing the custodians.
