Quilt Love For the Preschool Teachers

I apologize for going missing around these parts. I was off having fun with my sister-in-law, Haley visiting & the last week of school festivities for Sadie.

Check out the lap quilts that I made for Sadie's preschool teachers as a thank you gift. With the 3/50 Project on my mind, we took a little trip to Stitch Cleveland & Sadie helped me pick out the fabrics. Using Katie's tutorial, I put together these whole cloth quilts & it took just a couple days to make each of them.


The cute little apple note cards that we attached are a free download from Ez of Creature Comforts.



You know that I really like you if I make you a quilt. It's so true because I really, really wanted to keep these once they were finished. We so loved Sadie's teachers this year & are so appreciative of how wonderful they were to Sadie. We are going to miss them for sure. And they deserved a little quilty love from us. I can't believe it's over & summer is here! Sadie is having a hard time grasping just how long it will be until Kindergarten starts & she is very concerned about getting a lunch box. :)

great job!! I admit I was missing u. I never ealized how much I stop by to read ur thoughts. I am glad u made the quilts. I worked at a daycare once and feeling appreciated goes a long way in helping the teachers do the job well and enjoy it. Each time they use it they will think of Sadie and feel happy.
