Normally, I don’t do much for teacher gifts – a little potted basil with a family recipe is my go-to. However, some teachers are just so amazing and loving that you want to do a little more, and when you have the perfect charm pack in your stash, and Amazing Teacher is expecting a baby, a baby quilt nearly makes itself.
Quilt Top – “School Days” by American Jane for Moda

Except that it didn’t make itself. Gianna made it. She gave this quilt top her very best efforts, and with the help of a quarter-inch piecing foot and an attentive mother, she did an impressive job for a six-year old. We were running short on time, so I finished and quilted the baby blanket for her.
I am proud of my daughter who’s big heart is always dreaming up big ideas for loving other people. I can learn a thing or two from her.
