Added 8/16/2012 – I am trying out this “Reblog” feature on WordPress. So, things might look a bit crazy on the layout. Anyway, the idea of school hit closer to home at the Ivory Spring household this week as I enrolled Miss Baby is a psedu-pre-school prep class to help her get used to learning with other children. I thought I will repost my “Teacher’s Welcome” quilt since it’s that time of the year for my quilting buddies that are in the education sector! I have now officially started my other job – a taxi driver for Miss Baby, and let me tell you, it’s tiring!
Good day, Friends! Summer often gives way to preparation for a new school year – teachers and parents alike. I thought you might like my “blackboard” quilt “Teacher’s Welcome” that is featured in the August 2010 issue of Quilter’s World:
The sample quilt has “WELCOME” appliqued on the blackboard, but you may choose to applique any words you might like to suit your classroom purposes – names of your students, class motto etc.
Here are pictures that show the quilting on the quilt:
To make it more school-lish, I quilted cursive abc’s along the sashings:
The fabrics are from “Heritage Prints”, “Flower Mart III”, and “Fossil Fern” by Benartex:
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great rest of the summer! I am off to quilting my Christmas Whirligigs Quilt – more pictures later!
