Hi friends!

It’s Lisa, from Quilty Zest.

As my kids remind me almost daily, the school year is almost over. Yikes!
I typically make cookies and write notes for teacher thank yous, but my 9-year-old, Benji, wanted to make a gift for his 4th grade teacher. So we did, and we’re sharing it with you!

A few months ago, I did a mini quilt trunk show/how people use math in life presentation in Benji’s class. I took my sunshine quilt along to show, and his teacher gushed over how much she loved it. So we decided to make a mini version of that for her. This project is great to do with a kid because it gives them plenty of opportunities to contribute.

We’ll be sharing how to make this Sunshine Mini Quilt in my upcoming Facebook Live in the Therm O Web Craft Room Facebook Group! Join me tonight at 7:30 PM CDT as Benji and I share the steps to make this cheery project. What teacher couldn’t use a little extra sunshine in their life? Or anyone, really? Sunshine Mini Quilts for everyone!

Here’s what you’ll need:
5″ x 10″ pieces of 5-6 yellow prints
(1) 13″ square blue background fabric
(2) 2-1/4″ x WOF strips for binding
(1) 14″ square backing fabric
HeatnBond Lite Sewable
Fusible Fleece
