September OPAM & a farewell

My September finish & the only sewing I have done for a while was a farewell gift for our school Principal.  Mrs Hutton had been part of the school community for 10 years, seven of those years she was directly involved with my family.  This quilt was fun & frantic.

We had 5 weeks notice that she was leaving.  1 week in shock, 1 week planning & prepping the quilt, 2 weeks of children drawing & 1 frantic week of sewing and quilting.  The result, a quilt she loved made by 354 children & approx 30 staff.
