Jul 18, 2019 8:06:05 AM / by AccuQuilt

It's almost August and you know what that means: back to school time is nearing! We've been walking past all the classroom shopping lists and wading through new backpacks and school supplies for weeks. While students everywhere pick out new outfits and think about this year's classes, teachers are just as busy. Why not thank the teacher in your life for all their hard work with one of these A+ quilted projects? 


Quilted Decor for the Sharp Educator



Know and love a sharp educator? The GO! Qube 8" Pencil Me In Wall Hanging Pattern will look amazing on their classroom wall or hanging on the front of their desk. The colors used here will suit any artsy, colorful personality, but if that's not the look you're going for, use GO! Quilt to test different fabrics and colors (it's FREE). You can upload your own fabrics or use any of the preloaded designer lines to give this quilt pattern the right feel.


Speaking of amazing instructors, when you're done with customizing the pattern, GO! Quilt will provide updated fabric estimations and cutting instructions.

Don't forget! This pattern will work with any size GO! Qube, but the finished size will change. 


Personalized Artwork



The GO! Listen to Your Heart Pattern is simple in design but darling in delivery, which makes it great for beginners or for a quick project. With the GO! Carefree Alphabet Set by your side, you can trade out this phrase for your teacher's name or a motivational quote like "be kind" and "pass on a smile".

Chic Color Wheel



The GO! Local Color Quilt is so stylish and inspirational! With the right fabric placement, the circles can show the relationship between colors and how combining two primary colors make an entirely new hue. That's decor and a color theory lesson all in one! Sound too complicated? It gets a whole lot easier when you use GO! Quilt to select fabric.  


Give GO! Local Color Quilt pattern your own twist with GO! Quilt here!


Of course, there doesn't have to be a lesson in artwork. Choose your teacher's favorite colors and make something beautiful for them to use in the classroom or at home.

Comfy Puns for the Long Days

Who doesn't love a good pun? On a rough day, these pillows will lighten the mood and remind teachers and students alike to drop the "crabby" attitude and instead "Seas the Day" and "Be a Star". If you're feeling creative, you can easily personalize the gift with your own seaside sayings. For example, inspire the class with a "Keep swimming" or "stay bubbly". If puns don't seem right, simply add the teacher's name. Whatever you choose, pillows go together quickly and are always a great gift for a classroom's relaxation/cool down corner.

Plush ABCs & 123s



Does the educator in your life work with young learners? The GO! Qube 12" Alphabet Pillow pattern makes cute, cubic pillows that will suit any reading nook or a creative accent pillow. The pattern includes letters A through F, but it's easy to cut all 26 letters of the alphabet with the lowercase and uppercase GO! Carefree Alphabet. Use shapes from our extensive fabric appliqué die collection or the GO! Owl (55333) and GO! Owl Accessories (55675) dies which combine to make an endless amount of woodland creatures.
