My son was lucky enough to have the same teacher for 2 years in a row. Mrs S had taught son 2 in Prep and moved onto 1st grade this year. To complement the quilt I made last year for Mrs S, I made this European sized pillow/cushion with all the children’s names embroidered on the back.
The pillow is made using EPP (English Paper Piecing) using the scraps from a Fa La La La Layer Cake and some yardage from other French General collections. It is quilted on both sides with contrasting olive and cream threads.

My little boy decided to make the teacher something too. He drew a wonderful picture using the Crayola fabric pens. It is trashies and the parable of the ‘sower and the seeds’. He gave it the title – “The everything world”. I am sure there is a deep and meaningful message in there somewhere.
Mrs S is a fantastic teacher. I can only hope she will apply for grade 2 next year. Thank you Mrs S for making my son’s year a wonderful, safe, happy and memorable year.
