As seen in the previous post, Schnerby and I were paired for this swap and as we both live within a trip to Melbourne, we decided to exchange in person.
Schnerby absolutely nailed my theme. I am a VCAL teacher: VCAL is a hands on learning program for students who want to stay in education for their senior years but they generally don't intend to take up tertiary education, they want to go into trades.
I requested a quilt that spelled out VCAL for decorating our classroom. Schnerby got it in spades!
Each of the letters is so cleverly constructed. The V is a pair of pliers, the C is three paint brushes, the A is 3 rulers and the L is 2 spanners. Brilliant! The sashing is decorated with the real deal, screws and bolts and the like. The background is printed with little gears that schnerby did with a potato, cool!
Here is a closer view of my favourite block, the L, I really love the texture on the spanners>
Check out the pliers, so cool and shadow quilted
I can't wait to put it up in our classroom the boys (and 3 girls) will love having something made just for them. But it is the start of 2 weeks holiday so it will have to wait.
Thanks to Schnerby for being such a lovely partner. You rock!
