For Stuarts Year 1 teacher Miss Freeman, I made a large ragged edges quilt from Japanese type fabrics that had gold in them. Each block was 10 inches square with the wadding 8.5 inches to allow a very ragged 1.5 inch seam, I used the same fabric on the back as the front. It came together quickly, started and completed in 3 days. On the card I wrote "I may not of been the perfect student for you, but you were the perfect teacher for me". Miss Freeman is an excellent teacher, she had a difficult group of kids but managed remarkably well and Stuart loves her to bits.
