The twins are fourth grade pupils and the next year their class is going to get a new teacher. All of them – the classmates – really loves their present class teacher and it is hard to part with her.
At the end of the school year she is going to get a gift from the class. At the parent’s meeting I offered to make a quilt if the majority liked the idea. Soon a hand print quilt started to form in my mind and the other parents agreed too that I’m going to sew a quilt that will remind her for the four years she spent with our children.
It is a secret project, so I only show you the materials I actually use for the quilt, then in the summer I will show you the result.

The first step, after preparing, ironing and cutting the fabrics, is to take the hand prints of the children.
