I’m talking about my new quilt named “Back to School”, not that I’m going back to school!
This will be my first fall in 34 years that I’m NOT going back to school!! YESSSSSS!!
Love, LOVE, L. O. V. E. being retired!! Soooo wonderful!!
But, do want some new school themed quilts to put out every September with all my collected teacher memorabilia.
This pattern was one of those free flyer patterns given to me with an online fabric order.
It was supposed to be made with an autumn themed panel, but I just loved the apples, so I just used a cute vintage school print from Susan Branch for the centers of the blocks where the fall panels were to go.
Well, The Queen Mother (aka my Handiquilter Sweet 16 Sit Down machine) is not in my little sewing room- it is across the hall in our home office.
I took Yogi’s bed off my sewing table and brought it in that room… but he does not like it in there on the floor.
He would rather just lay on the floor in the hall at the top of the stairs.
I used some red stash fat quarters to make the apples.
And some of the many school themed prints for the rest! And I still have plenty left for a few more quilts!!
I’m thinking of using my Accuquilt GO! and the tumbler die to make a quilt with the smaller school fabric scraps!
Isn’t that backing fabric cute??
I’ve got my granny square quilt all pin-basted and ready to quilt…
but I’m half way done piecing Dime Store - the August Schnibble pattern… so will probably finish the top and then quilt the granny square quilt while I’m waiting for the backing fabric to come in the mail!!
What sewing are you doing this weekend?? Something fun???
