End of Year Sewing

What’s that? End of Year?!? How can that be? I mean the end of the school year of course! This year I am making a very special quilt for Anne’s kindergarten teacher. In my life before Anne I was actually a substitute teacher working on my Master’s in Teaching, so teachers hold a special place in my heart. For the quilt for Anne’s teacher I had each of her students draw a quilt block with Crayola Crayons showing something they learned or did in Kindergarten. Each block I heat set with my iron and a Teflon pressing cloth. I even had the teacher make one!  I am going to sew the blocks together so that the quilt can hang in the classroom and the teacher can use it as a teaching tool for her future classes. Kindergartners telling kindergartners all the things they will learn. I have the banner made for it and today I am hoping to get the sashing in before I go volunteer at the school.

    That’s great! When I taught, I had no time to make one of these, but would have loved it if someone else had. I had my students write letters to the following year’s students, but a quilt would have been so much better! Lucky kinder teacher. You know, as Anne moves up the grades, every teacher is going to hope she’s in their class, not just for Anne, but for her mom, too. =)

  3. That’s a wonderful idea. Good luck putting it all together.
