A Quilt for Pasquale (and a giveaway winner)

Harper with Pasquale
This year my daughter's kindergarten class has a stuffed koala named Pasquale.  Everyone gets a turn to take Pasquale home and take care of him, and last night was Harper's turn.  He came home in his own little backpack and a bright pink toothbrush but he was missing one thing: a quilt.  And everyone in our house gets a quilt.

The silliness of making a quilt for a stuffed koala is not lost on me, but I did it anyway. Harper picked out the scraps and contributed to the arrangement (her attention span was a little crazy, but she helped here and there).

The quilt finished up at 16" square which, it turns out, is just the right size for a stuffed koala.

Thanks everyone for entering the destash giveaway.  The winner is Liz!  I have sent you an email and I will mail out your package as soon as I get your address.

  7. I bet that was a satisfying quilt to make. :) Last year for Seuss Day, I made the kindergarten teacher a Seuss quilt. It was a big hit with the kids. I bet your daughter's class will really love Pasquale's new night-night, too!
