At my daughter's amazing Waldorf Inspired school, The Seaside Playgarden www.seasidecommunityschools.org the children receive school symbols at the beginning of the year. These symbols are used instead of the child's name on all of the child's stuff (art, cubby, socks....). The day my daughter received her symbol, the snail, I set out to find fabric with snails on it. I was so happy when I found Happier by Deena Rutter for Riley BlakeIt had all of my favorites: snails, trees, butterflies, ladybugs..... I ordered a jelly roll and set out to make my first REAL quilt. I looked at books, the internet, blogs... and well, came up with my own design!
