Christmas lap quilt for Michelle

Made this lap quilt as a thank-you and farewell (from work) for my awesome friend and teacher aide, Michelle Wallis. 

Michelle and I were very good friends at Longford Intermediate School (many moons ago) and it was really cool to be able to reconnect nine years ago when we moved to Edendale and Michelle invited Kieran and I along to the local playgroup, and Brian joined the fire brigade (where Michelle's husband Bob is a member too).
Machine-patched and quilted; fabrics from a range sold at Kits'n'Things in Invercargill.
Pattern was called 'Christmas Cheer' by Jacky Hens and was from magazine 'Patchwork and Stitching' Vol 3 No 7.

Michelle and I have been working together at Edendale School since 2004 and having Michelle working with a special needs child in my room this year has been fantastic so I wanted to create something special for her as she gives so much to the community in so many ways.

The special needs child Michelle has worked with will be moving on to college next year, so Michelle will no longer work with us at Edendale - she will be working with adult special needs clients in Gore.
