A gift for the 4th grade teacher


My 4th grade son’s teacher was going to be a Daddy for the first time right as school was letting out. I thought it was the perfect excuse to make a quilt. I am always looking for good reasons to make things;)


I decided on this lovely fabric from Denyse Schmidt. I made a super simple pattern from HST with cream and squares of the printed fabric. It went together in no time at all.


I backed it with some polka dot flannel fabric. I do love to back my quilts with something soft. Particularly if I am using it for a baby or child. My kids go crazy over soft textures.


I did an all over meander in the white and a little bit of a different fmq for the patterned fabric. It washed up like a dream and the roll was just too cute!
