Cobblestones (with halved cobblestone border) on the front.
The backing is also appropriate, as this teacher (The Lovely Miss Stout, as she is ALWAYS called in our house) has championed DD1 right the way through school, and was instrumental in getting her dyslexia diagnosed, amongst other issues, as well as helping to get her additional help for school.
As planned, the rest of it was stippled. I worked hard at trying to keep the scale of the stipple even, and I just about succeeded.
The front used up lots of the scraps from the quilt - wish that I'd had a few more useful sized bits of paler pink too!
This shows it with the quilt all tucked away.
I picked up the pattern (there is a full tutorial too) from emlibrary here - I like the idea of the bow / elastic to fasten it around your shoulder, if you so choose.
Perhaps if you don't want to quilt you might consider making a few of these instead? Quite fast to make, and I'm sure that they would be well received at your local cancer treatment centre.
