College days - what has happened later

What a day!
My friend's daughter is going to study in England.
Do you remember the graduation bag I have made for her?
Now I want to make something that will make her happy when she is homesick.
A cozy cushion seemed to be a proper decision.
The block "Old time learning" I have designed for the College day Hop was an orphan and I thought it will be great base for a pillow case for a young student.

Download for FREE block from here and make one for you of your friends' children.
The block is 10" finished so I have added 3.5" strips left, right, up and down. This makes 16" finished size which is standard pillow insert.

Add thin batting and backing and quilt.
I am very proud with idea adding quilting as notepad -  dark violet for rows and red for the margin on the left.

The back is envelope closure.

Happy sewing to you and happy learning to all students!
