I put the final stitches on the Quilt of Valor last night! Iâ€™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.
Itâ€™s also that time of year when we need to start thinking of teacher gifts, and I normally wouldnâ€™t do quilts for teacher gifts because itâ€™s a bad precedent to set, IMO (all my kidsâ€™ teachers have been great, but not necessarily “quilt worthy”). I did the quilt for my daughterâ€™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 sonâ€™s teacher has done great with him in both 4th grade and the Science Olympiad, so… yeah. Iâ€™m making two quilts.
Anyone, one of them will be related to science. Can you guess from that picture of all the colorful squares?
