Personally, I've been spending my time elsewhere for the most part. Yep, you guessed it- in my classroom. It's almost finished. I just have a few finishing touches to add when I get my list of students.
After finishing my French Quarter Charm quilt earlier this week, I did accomplish a little bit of sewing, though some of it is still school related. My principal decided that our school's front lobby needed a makeover and enlisted the help of several teachers with various creative skills. I sewed these cute panels to dress up the gray cubicle around the front desk. I can't take credit for the burlap hanger though!
Because the whole front area is in a bit of disarray with the facelift in progress, I couldn't really photograph the panels in their entirety, but there are 5 of them surrounding the desk area. They're made of duck cloth, which I've never sewed before, so that was a new experience. I was glad to do my part for my fantastic school!
Just today, I've been super busy making four patches and turning them into disappearing four patches. I have to make a total of 80 of them for my next quilt, and I'm over halfway done. More on that later!
I will let you know that our school was built in the early 1970's (I think), so we aren't equipped with a sprinkler system. As such, lots of the cute fabricy things I would like to do are a no-no according to our fire marshal. We're also severely limited on the amount of wall space we can have covered with posters and stuff. So, I just have to work to make it cute within the parameters I've been given.
Check it out-
I can't wait to get my list of students and finish it up!
Soooo...last week's party was filled with fabulousness. Here are a few things that I especially loved-
Jan at Sew and Sow Farm shared this Civil War Sampler made with Pam Kitty Love fabrics. I love the bright modern twist on this traditional design.
Diann at Little Penguin Quilts shared her finished Scrappy Trip top. I'm such a sucker for a Scrappy Trip. I think I'm going to have to make one soon!
And Sarah, from Sarah Quilts linked this really cool applique project. I love the whimsical feeling of this!
