This is what kept me busy all last evenings after those crazy days of the last school weeks. My 6th graders to whom I teach basic sewing skills mended together the little squares in the middle. Motivation was that their class teacher was very pregnant. I had to do the rest and since the class is leaving it had to be done before summer vacations. It was a great surprise for their former teacher who visited her students on their last day. Unfortunately without the by now not so little baby, but she was so very happy. What I did not know was that she wanted a patchwork cover but could not find one. I have to tell you American readers, that quilting is not a German tradition as in the US. We do have it as a craft, but we don't use blankets etc. for sleeping, but duvets filled with feathers or other stuff.
It is almost my first quilt ever. I know it's not perfect, but my aim was to get it done without getting lost in instruction books and to get it done now. What a satisfaction to finally doing something and finishing. I really liked it, even more now that the presentee is so happy with it. Of course for the students it was a very good experience also.
