Christmas Gifts for Teachers

I love doing Secret Santa at work.  It's such a joy to find a little something on my desk in the morning.  But what to do for the big gift at the end?  I decided on name signs for my teacher friends.  It's a good thing I knew my Secret Santa loved blue.  

The second one was for my student teacher.  It's been three days without her and I miss her tons.  I had a kid figure out her favorite color (sea foam green).  Each of the letter was cut out of fabric backed with fusible.  Then quilted and finally bound with fused fabric.  They hang on the wall and this way requires no hand sewing.

I had fun quilting circles between the letters on this one.  I also had fun cutting the binding with my pinking rotary blade in the cutter.  It adds something fun to this binding I think.

Here's another example of the pinking in black.

You weren't going to see anything on this green, so I just did a big stipple.

The best part....both of the recipients loved their quilts!  It always makes me happy when this happens.

I hope you get to quilt today!
