I put the final stitches on the Quilt of Valor last night! I’ve still got to make the storage pillowcase for it, as well as two “real” pillowcases. But not to be inefficient, I also need a project to use as leaders and enders while sewing those various projects.
It’s also that time of year when we need to start thinking of teacher gifts, and I normally wouldn’t do quilts for teacher gifts because it’s a bad precedent to set, IMO (all my kids’ teachers have been great, but not necessarily “quilt worthy”). I did the quilt for my daughter’s teacher last year because she was retiring. This year, her teacher is getting married (and she also taught my son in the same grade). And this year, my son’s teacher has done great with him in both 4th grade and the Science Olympiad, so… yeah. I’m making two quilts.
Anyone, one of them will be related to science. Can you guess from that picture of all the colorful squares?
