    Retirement quilt

    A retirement quilt for our art teacher after 35 years in our schools. I loved to see the creative side of the teachers in their congratulation notes. It was a very fast quilt to make, it took longer to gather all signatures!

    I can't click and get a larger picture of this one either. I can't tell heads from tails about this one.

    What a wonderful retirement gift. Can't make it larger to read the messages but the teacher will always cherish a quilt like that.

    I can't make it larger either; wish I were able to read the messages. Love your pattern and the colors. She'll love it.

    That's "Slanting Stars", isn't it? Whatever pattern it is, it's a fabulous quilt & a wonderful thought behind it.
