A Teacher's Love Helps Us Grow

 Here is a layout of one of each of the different colors of handprints.  The hands are traced from her students' hands.  Their names are written on the leaves with a pigma pen.

Here is a close up of part of the center of the quilt.  It is a 3D pinwheel that I found directions for online.  Very easy - the only hard part is the bulk in the seams.  I appliqued the "stem" for the pinwheel.

I love the sashing batik.  It has all the colors of the handprints in it.
This is the center of the center.  It will have a white strip above with friend's name and school embroidered on it.  That's being done professionally. LOL Then a bottom strip of green under this strip will have a quote embroidered.


  1. This is a wonderful quilt. The leaves around the hands are a wonderful idea.
    Lots of love here.
