This adorable quilt will get you so excited for back to school! It features pencils and hearts with a fun border! All the education vibes included!
There is nothing better than freshly sharpened pencils with unused erasers – so shiny and full of possibilities! I can almost smell the pencil shavings!
Teacher Gift Quilt Ideas
This quilt also makes a great teacher gift! Use the white space for classroom handprints or use fabric markers for student signatures to hold memories of a great year. This quilt can be made for a retiring teacher, too! What a special gift to give.

Back to School Quilt Fabrics
This quilt has quintessential pencil colors plus black and white. I used all Riley Blake solids for this quilt. Here are suggested fabrics with links:
- White Background: Confetti Cottons Vintage White (affiliate links)
- Border and Pencil Tips: Riley Black
- Pink Eraser: Rose
- Light Brown Wood: Beach
- Metal Band Grey: Riley Gray
- Pencil Yellow: Riley Blake Riley Yellow
- Hearts: Confetti Cottons Tomato
The back of the quilt is a wide back fabric (108″) called Bee Ginghams in Pebble. You need 2 yards of backing but you’ll have a lot left over. I like to get at least 3 yards so I can get 2 quilt backs out of it.
