Quilt for Teacher

Fire Monkey and I have sewn a few quilts together.  When we were working on the most recent one, I asked if next he wanted to make a quilt to give his teacher at the end of the year.  He said yes.  I asked him to find out her favorite colors.  A few days later, he reported back: pink & purple.  I knew I had a stack of fat quarters that was half purple in the bin of fabric my friend Jen's mom gave me when she de-stashed, and I knew I had other purple I could use to supplement.  So I picked out two fairly easy patterns from the The Jolly Bar Book vol 1 by Fat Quarter Shop and I let Fire Monkey pick.

He picked the Seas the Day pattern.  I had a charm pack of Kona White that I used for the corners, and I saved the cut-off pieces to make a HST quilt.  Then Fire Monkey helped with the pieces.  I've learned that he does best with large pieces ta go together quickly.  I wanted this a little bigger than the original pattern so I added two vertical rows.  My version is 44" x 56".

The back is a floral stripe with a piece of a pink floral in between to make it big enough.  The stripe was left over from something else; it was already cut along a stripe edge.  Everything in this project was somethign I had on hand, even though we actually planned it before the shut-down of everything due to Covid-19.

You can see the wavy line quilting pretty well in this picture.

I'm calling it Purple Waves.  Our last day of school was yesterday but we need to go on Friday to return a library book and pick up some papers.  I'm hoping we can drop off a gift then, too.  If not, we'll make arrangements to meet the teacher somewhere.  I hope she likes it!

I stopped making custom labels for every quilt a while ago, but this one seemed to call for one. (Don't worry, I still label all my quilts!)  The school is a dual language program and Kindergarten is an immersion year, so the teacher's primary language is Spanish.  My husband helped to translate for the label.  I tried something new for attaching and I really like it.  I took a strip of the binding fabric, Kona Purple, and made double fold binding.  I then folded over the double-fold binding and stitched it down on two sides of the label.  Then I put the label in the corner so other two sides would get sewn into the binding. 

Another great finish with the Fire Monkey!  I hope we can make this an annual project.


  1. I'm sure she'll like it. Tell Fire Monkey he made some very good choices! It's a pretty quilt. Grand idea for the label too!
