Have been on a bit of a fabric basket kick lately... this one measures 11" x 7" and has a removable 3-section plastic organizer. The plastic organizer is simply a disposable food container that I purchased for $1.00 at Dollar Tree! I have been making many of these baskets in all different sizes and patterns for the past week and can't get enough of them! If you want to learn how to make one of your own, I will be teaching a class at The Quilting Folks on Tuesday evening, August 28th from 6:00-8:00.

|Each square has an appliqued mustache!|
Well, this quilt requires a bit of an explanation... My daughter came to me a week before the last day of school and asked me to make one more quilt for her beloved teacher, Mrs. Meister... "And mom, can you make it a mustache quilt?" You see, somehow mustaches really caught on as a kind of "thing" in Mrs. Meister's class this year... so this is the result... a mustache themed quilt to say thank you for being the best teacher ever... did I mention Emily missed only one question on both the math and reading FCATs this year? Thank you very much Mrs. Meister!
The label on the back of the quilt says, "Thank you for the stash of memories and knowledge you gave us this year, but now we must dash. Love your 6th grade class, 2011-2012"

|Dr. Cyndee Hutchinson with her new quilt!|
I made this quilt for a very special mentor, Dr. Hutchinson, who allowed me to work with her this summer teaching a course called Teaching Strategies and Classroom Management. The quilt is made out of scraps I picked up for .10 cents each at a quilt show last spring. The quilting really enhanced the simple beauty of this quilt... thank you Laurel Merrill for doing your magic and thank you, Cyndee for being such a great colleague and mentor!

|No pattern... Just a pair of scissors and two fat quarters!|
