I have been busy crazy getting two quilts done for teachers around here. This is the first one I got finished! The sweet Amanda of Quilted Fish designs the perfect cheerful fabric! The colors fit the teacher to a tee- we gave it to her this morning and she went crazy!
It was her first year teaching so I wanted it to be a good memory for her. Little did I know that her grandma is teaching her to quilt and blankets are her favorite thing in the world! I was soooooo thrilled!
I cut the fat quarters into thin and fat strips and went crazy sewing them into a fun pattern. I wanted it all mixed up and colorful and was very happy with how it turned out.
I added a wide piece of ric rac, because I love ric rac :). The bad had a few pieced pieces and then we wrote a note on one section of solid yellow.
The rest of the back was finished off with a perfectly matching vintage sheet I found! It turned out well and I quilted it with loops! My favorite, of course :)
