The quilt I am sharing is one that I made for my daughter's teacher. He was her first formal teacher (we had home-educated before) and he left the school at the end of her first year at school, right after I started quilting. I got my daughter to trace around the hands of each of her classmates and her teacher. She also asked them what their favourite colour was.
I cut out each child's hand in their favourite colour and appliqued it to the quilt top. The teacher's hand print is in the centre. I then echo quilted around all the hands until the children's hands met the teacher's hand. Here is the end result.
Here is a closeup of the quilting.
