They measure about 68x88 and ya need about five yards of backing to finish a twin size quilt.
I knew exactly who I wanted to highlight for this week's post: Jasmine who blogs at Quilt Kisses.
As along with being a busy young mother of her adorable boys, she creates a home full of quilty love.

Happily Binding this Week

I have not one, but two quilt finishes ahead: 
The quilt on the left was donated to my classroom from Sharon. I got it quilted during spring break and the brown polka dot binding on today. I also quilted my H2H Pirate quilt and don't ya just love the little skull/cross bone binding I found to finish it?! Today was one of those days I just got going in the studio. Hubby used the afternoon to go pick up our outdoor fire place and I decided to stay home and spend the afternoon sewing. It felt soooo good!
I'm definitely looking forward to this slow stitching during evening TV this upcoming week and I'm looking forward to sharing these two finishes with you very soon. Until then....happy stitching!

I've Created a Stitching Monster!

The stitching continues in Second Grade.
First the blanket stitch, then the chain stitch, followed by the running stitch.
This little guy loves stitching so much when I couldn't find my Creative stitching book 
and asked if anyone had seen it...he exclaimed, "I'm using it for silent reading!!"
(So of course I had to take a picture of it tucked in his desk!)
He is now "my assistant" and helps me teach the other students. 

It's rewarding to see the elephant parade continue.
 .I especially love how these noses actually roll up!
Creative Stitching has certainly become a relaxing transition between subjects.
If you could be a fly on the wall, what are you curious about as the children learn to stitch?

This week's theme is: T-Shirt Quilts

One from my own archives:
This one ended up being auctioned off as a school fundraiser and brought in almost $350.00.
That be said, this is the only T-shirt quilt I've made.I wish I had a picture of my son-in-laws, as it's beautiful and was made from him by his grandmother for his high school graduation. 
T-shirts certainly make for a wonderful graduation gift.
