    I pieced this together this weekend. It is for one of my girls teachers end of the year gift. I am pretty happy with it. Now off this week to get the backing.

    That's a really really nice teacher gift!!!! I have only done a quilt for a teacher once, it was for my girl's track and cross country coach in High school. The quilt was a gift from the track team when DD#3 was the head senior on the team. Each girl paid $5 toward the cost of making it and I had them each sign the quilt for coach.
    What a generous gift you have there, and beautiful too.

    Wow Mamabird that is a very sweet gift. Teachers always deserve a little spoiling for all the hard work they do. She will love it and treasure it too.

    That is a great block pattern. It looks good in that color too. My DD is a teacher and I know she would be thrilled to get a quilt from a student's Mom. Very nice of you.

    Thank you so much for the lovely comments.

    There is a tiny bit of a story behind giving her this quilt. Last year I made Marys (my 1st grader) teacher a reversible tote bag as a end of the year gift. Saras (my kindergartner) teacher was a co-teacher in that class. I made a quilt for the kindergarten class with their self portraits on it this year for an auction. So Saras teacher tells me last month... "you know you have to make me something this year too". lol I asked her what she wanted. She said it didn't matter, she likes everything I make. So I figured what the heck... and she is getting a quilt.

    She is a great teacher. Kids adore her and so do I. After Annies (my 5th grader) experience with a not so wonderful kindergarten teacher I am so thankful for a great start in school for the other two girls. From experience I would say that your first teacher has a huge influence on the rest of your schooling. I volunteer alot in that school and I think they have one of the hardest jobs, as well as the most fullfilling.

    Now the only problem with making this quilt is.... Mary will probably have the same teacher next year (fingers crossed) as she did in kindergarten. lol And those two are best friends and very competitive.... so I guess I better start thinking about next years quilt!!

    Have a happy Day!

    It's beautiful!!! What a lucky teacher! What is the name of the pattern? Is it done on-point or straight set?
    I like the different designs you can see depending on how you look at it.

    What a wonderful gift for your daughter's teacher. It is beautiful. I love the squares and the colors. Certainly better then the perverbal apple, ;) . Something for her to cherish her whole life and remember how much her work was appreciated by her student.
