teacher quilts

Despite my lack of posting, I have been quilting. I decided to make Gavin's teachers each a quilt for their hard work and dedication in the classroom. I let Gavin pick out two fat quarter bundles after trying to find any type of school-ish fabric that wasn't lame. He picked colors WAY outside my comfort zone.
The one on the left is for Miss Jenn and the one on the right is for Miss Nancy.

I can't say enough good stuff about these two ladies. I love them. When Gavin started last fall he said maybe 5 words and he was almost paralyzingly shy.

They took their time with him, were kind and gentle with him, each and every day they were happy to see him.
Luckily for me (and Gavin ) he gets to go back to Miss Jenn and Miss Nancy's class again in the fall.
I hope they both know how much our family appreciates everything they do for Gavin and for all the kids.

Good job for letting him pick out the fabric... That must have been hard.. It's always great when they get teachers you love and they love.. By the way the wall be hind the couch has changed.. I love the way to put all the pictures there!!!!!
