A Teacher Gift for a Very Special Teacher

Our 3rd, and most shy child, had a wonderfully fantastic Kindergarten teacher this year. She taught her so many things and pulled her out of her shell a bit. We just love her!!! All our kids teachers were great this year, but I did get to know this particular one well because I was one of her room mom's.

So the other room mom and I got together and decided to make her something really special.
Something that all the kids in the class could contribute something to.
We decided on a quilt, with all their hand prints on blocks.
It was so fun, and messy, but worth it! The quilt is nearly twin sized, and so large that I had to fold it in half and take a picture of the top and bottom halves. If I weren't so lazy, I could have gone out to the garage and gotten the ladder to snap a shot of the entire thing....but yeah, like that was going to happen. :)
We tried to choose fabrics as fresh and funky as she is, and I am really really pleased with the way it turned out! I know my little girl will certainly miss her next year and we hope she will continue to bloom and grow!
