American Jane GIANT Star...

......for the BEST first grade teacher in the WHOLE world!

Seriously, Ms. Lundell is one of the most wonderful teachers my children have ever had.  She has been all three of my boys first grade teacher.  She comes by it rightly, as her mother was an AWESOME teacher as well.  Her mother, Mrs. Lundell taught my oldest and my youngest daughter in third and first grade, respectively.

Now that I make quilts, I was thinking about how I should decide which teacher, if any, get a quilt made for them?  I decided that if they taught three or more of my children, they get a quilt.  Now, please note that I think ALL of my children's teachers a FABULOUS(!!!), I just can't afford to make them all quilts :/

I don't know if you can make out the words in the quilting below, but it reads, "First Grade Whisperer."

Ms. Lundell is absolutely magic with the kids.  The children are calm and peaceful whenever she is around. (I am not kidding, she emits Zanex or something...)  The children in her class are so well behaved that EVERYONE notices.  She ROCKS!  (I need to take lessons)

The label on the back.

I have to say that I am sad to be finished with first grade and Ms. Lundell.  My babies are growing up and I will miss their first grade sweetness!


  1. what a beautiful quilt! I make teacher quilts too, and it's shocking to me that sometimes when I give them a quilt, I learn that they've never had a handmade quilt before. That is so special. I really love the words in the quilting, and the label. I'm sure she will cherish it.

    by the way- how big are your HST blocks?
