    what fun! The gift of a hug...

    I am a music teacher for an elementary school. On the side I also teach piano lessons - 23 students this year kept me in my studio until 8:00 PM 4 nights a week. THEN I get to my sewing machine. But ... this is why I do what I do. This delightful young lady performed in her senior recital this year. I was able to give her a quilt as a final gift for the years we have worked together. I started what I hope will be a tradition with last year's senior. This year I added fabrics of other interests the student had - she's a golfer as well as a pianist. Next year I have three young ladies who will be seniors. I'd better get started!

    Do all the fabrics have a musical theme ? What a wonderful commitment by you and a fantastic quilt for a musician

    Of the 12 fat quarters in this quilt (turning 12 pattern) 4 are music fabrics, 1 represented golf - her other great love, the rest are generic red, white, and black. Our school colors are red and white - with black accents.
    So many quilts, so little time.

    You couldn't have made anything more special for this senior, than your lovely quilt. I know she will treasure it forever & always. What a thoughtful thing to do, you are special!!
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Your students will remember you for a long time to come. Most likely they will remember you for the rest of their lives without the quilt but your loving gift of a quilt made by you will insure their fond remembrance of you. God bless you.
