The last one is done!

The last Teacher Quilt top went together the fastest of all! I started it Friday afternoon and I finished it right before dinner last night. I started with 2 charm packs of Flora by Lauren & Jessi Jung for Moda and 6 - 1/4 yards of coordinating solids.
The charms were arranged into groups of 6 and the 1st pairs were chain stitched together.
Within about an hour I had the 6 patches finished.
Sashings were then added around each block.
The blocks were arranged into rows, the rows were sewn together and a finished top resulted. Here is your sneak peak.
All I have left to do is to piece the backing together. On Tuesday morning I'll run it over to my LQS to hand off to my long arm quilter Dianne and I'll pick up teacher quilt #3 which is finished. Then I'll spend the rest of the day while the kidlets are at school in another binding/Harry Potter movie marathon.

I have just under 3 weeks to get all 4 quilts bound and labeled. The final push is on. Though I love sewing so much I am looking forward to some down time soon.

You are such a grateful parent. I am sure the teachers will love them.

Wish I could pop over and help you with the binding.

down to the wire! my neighbor hand pieced a top in these colors- I actually think that was the top she gave me because the colors weren't right for the recipient, then I quilted it and gave it away :) cool fabrics
