As an end of year “Thank You” gift for the twins’ kindergarten teacher, I decided to make her a quilt. Months ago, I went in during lunch time and traced all the kids’ hands without the teacher knowing. I used the tracings to make blocks that consist of each kids name and handprint. I used a Dr. Seuss font I found online to print the kids names on printable fabric. The rest of fabrics are all from the Celebrate Seuss! By Dr. Seuss Enterprises for Robert Kaufman Fabrics line of fabrics.
There are 19 kids in the class so I was one block short of being able to make a rectangle. I wrote a poem and printed it on fabric to make the final block. It was the first poem that I have written in about 20 years. I attempted to make it Dr. Seuss-ish. The twins thought it was great, but they are 6, so please don’t judge me on my poor poetry skills.
I’m going to have the kids present it to her at Kindergarten graduation next Friday. I can’t believe the year is almost over. I’m more than ready for summer break, but sad that Kindergarten is just about over for my girls.
