Day 5: Red House on a Hill

Not a very original title, I know.  I wish I had more time to do something wonderful.  This one has some flaws, and I’m not too excited about it, but at least I am keeping up with the challenge!  Only 25 days to go.   Blue sky courtesy of Picmonkey.

Day 3 of 30 An Apple a Day

Even though there are no signs of Fall around here, September still makes me think of apples.  I’ve been eating some nice Gala ones recently.  Can’t tell you what variety this one is!

Welcome to Music Class

I must confess that even though I didn’t teach music for several years, I was still collecting music themed fabric.  Most of the time I didn’t know what I would ever do with it.  But this was a no brainer.Music classYou know this HAD to go into a quilt.

I just love this print and was so pleased to finally use it.

The kids will need a special quilt to great them the 1st day of school.schoolbus

The final quilt, that will fit nicely on my classroom door, will greet students through the end of Sept.  The red apple fabric for the border was a must.  These seasonal quilts are very fun!

America the Beautiful

Every classroom needs a map.  I purchased the center panel years ago.  I added strips of fabric for the border and quilted it.  It will be a great addition to my music room. IMG_1197

I’m not sure who designed this, but they obviously didn’t use spell check.IMG_1198

It will be fun for my students to identify the spelling mistakes.IMG_1199 Nevertheless, I love the kitchy vibe of this print.  Though it has that 50’s look, It was printed by Moda fabrics just about 10 years ago. IMG_1201 IMG_1202

I’m trying to use up my vast stash of fabric, so I put another panel with similar colors on the back.IMG_1203

America the Beautiful quilt by Pam SchoessowCan’t wait to hang this one up.

A Cup of Flowers

I recently sold a number of paintings in my Etsy shop.  Yay!  So I need to paint some more.  This little teacup is just brimming with happy flowers.
