Teacher Appreciation Throw

This project is one of the reasons I have been so busy the last few weeks – don’t take me wrong, I have enjoyed working on all my projects! I finally got a whiteboard to list them all!!!!

As part of a teacher appreciation gift, my 11-year-old grand-daughter and her 5th grade classmates signed blocks of white fabric. I assembled them together with assorted school prints for the 2-1/2″ sashing and 3-1/2″ border. As there were only 21 blocks, I added 4 in baseball fabric to create 5 rows of 5 (7″) blocks. The Boston Red Sox fleece was chosen as the backing as it is the teacher’s favorite baseball team. I put my label in the lower left block and added “2013-2014” with permanent marker.

This was all done “long-distance” as my grand-daughter lives in New York state (I am on the West Coast)!

This project is quick and easy to put together. Feel free to create your own signature teacher throw. I am sure it will be greatly appreciated!
