Not sure where I've been the past two weeks, but I'm back today with a finished quilt. I gifted this today to my son's preschool teacher. She also taught our two older children so we've been blessed with five wonderful years with her (over the past 12 years). I really don't have the words to express how much her friendship has meant to me personally as I found my footing as a parent of a preschooler - 3 different times for 3 very different children. The pre-school is a co-op so I assisted roughly 20 times each school year in the classroom. A great crash course in dealing with how wonderful and difficult a preschooler can be. Anyway, she totally wasn't surprised when I showed up today with a quilt for her - and I love that.
Pattern is Spin Cycle by Allison of Cluck, Cluck, Sew. It was one row longer but it felt kind of long, so I took a row off.
Free motion quilting over the blocks and little loops in the sashing and border.
Backing fabric is from Allison's fabric line, Wallflowers.
Front and back together.
I really love this quilt and glad I gifted it to someone so special. I have a row of blocks leftover that might become a wall hanging for me.
