Today marked a lot of things: the end of Teacher Appreciation week, the start of Mother’s Day weekend, and the final week before our favorite Kindergarten teacher takes her maternity leave. Seems like reason enough to tell her thank you and congrats on baby #3!
This was a very special project for me to make...I got to use a lot of my very favorite Heather Ross fabrics, including of course, the brand new Kinder line. I fussy cut her name for the back of the quilt using the Kinder alphabet and had all of the students write their names on an index card, which I then traced (all but one ♀️) on to fabric and put on the back.
The pattern is Patchwork Sky by Thimble Blossoms and I did a meander quilting pattern on my Juki. I pieced the small squares in a rainbow pattern and used various grays from my stash for the stars.
I gave the quilt to our teacher this morning and all the kids got to see it and look for their names. It’s moments like these that make me so happy to be a quilter. She will always be a special part of our son’s life and education so I hope this gift will also be a part of her family as well.
Terrie played postwoman and hand delivered these beauties! And check out the amazing pot holders @tlgalle made. Before I get one of them dirty in the kitchen it’s going to hold some of my pins until I get something more permanent to showcase them. And the third shot shows all of my blocks together so far and a couple that will be headed to another member of the #bcbeehive2 lady. Such a fun month when the blocks start rolling in!! Thank you! #patchworkskyquilt#thimbleblossoms#bonnieandcamille
Before starting a long and busy weekend with my kids and their four day weekend, I took some time today and pieced these fun blocks for my #holidayhomies#patchworkskyquilt. I just love that dog in there!

Putting together some star blocks today! At 28 pieces per star, these pull a total of 588 pieces. . . and they’re only half the blocks . . . this quilt is not for the faint of heart! // #patchworkskyquilt#wip // also please note my pile of extra squares. . . I have no idea what happened
Sewed right through dinner tonight! My husband and I agreed that chips & queso + beer is a completely acceptable Saturday night meal though, so cheers! Now to trim and press out all these snowballed corners. . . // #wanderlustfabrics#patchworkskyquilt#wip
Another finished quilt top I had a lot of fun sewing this wonderful #patchworkskyquilt from #thimbleblossoms I used a solid called nautical blue from #modafabrics instead of scrappy fabrics for the stars and I love how it turned out I plan on using my favorite fabric from the #thegoodlifefabric -the large navy floral- as a backing but first I have to order batting
