Scrap Quilt

My friend Crystal had a quilt similar to this and I loved it- I stole her idea. For a year now I've been cutting up my scraps and saving them-- then I color grouped them. I love the way this came out- and I didn't have to spend a penny at all on it- all from scraps- I blame my friend Crystal for getting me started on this obsession!

Dream about teaching and Oh Fransson's Cat quilt

Quilters and Teachers- this is for you. As we all know teachers have strange dreams about school and quilters dream of quilting- now mine have merged. This is last nights dream- I'm just about to leave for my ACC night class from my high school and the swat team comes with one of my students parents saying they needed to get into a students locker- they suspected something was going on. The student had left class already and was  in another part if the

building. Dad gives permission to open the locker and the a ton of charm packs, chocolate bar packs, and fat quarter packs falls out of his locker. Parents are puzzled. Police confiscated my phone so I can't call ACC and tell them I'm going to be late. they hold me there till student comes back- he returns and is questioned,searched by police- is found to have a quilt pattern on him. The police question him and he says that he's been buying them on sale and stock piling them so he can make oh fransson's cat quilt along while he's recovering from leg surgery the next day and he didn't want his parents to know he quilted .

I was so excited when my friend Tami found out she was having a girl. I could make another Vintage Sheet quilt and since we both went to Virginia Tech, I made her a VT Hokies quilt,too.

Math Quilt

My Department head is leaving so I was asked by co workers to make her a quilt. It was fun. I did the top
in one weekend. It took me about 15-16 hours though to machine quilt the top- but it was worth it and came out cute. Do you know what it is? Math people will be able to spot it right away!!!!!

Out of the Box

Here is my first out of the box block. The idea behind this is you pick 3 crayons out of a box and then randomly pick a block out of a block took book/swatch. It was fun. My colors were green, grey, and magenta. Can't wait to do another one.
