Kitchenaid Miniquilt

My oldest is finishing up 8th grade in the next few days, and his cooking teacher has been one of the bright lights of his middle school experience. My boy took cooking in 6th and 7th grades, and TAed for the cooking teacher for two trimesters this year. I decided to make her a mini-quilt using the Kitchenaid mixer pattern by Erin from Why Not Sew. (I've had this pattern pinned for ages and this was just about the perfect situation to finally sew it up.)

I decided to go with hand quilting, and I think I'm going to do a bit more quilting in the mixing bowl, and I'll probably finish off with a gray binding. I hope the cooking teacher will like it!

This is too cute. This would make a great kitchen wall hanging! And it could be in any colors so it would work well for everyone!
