My Corkboard Schoolteacher Quilt

I'm naming this quilt my "Corkboard Schoolteacher Quilt" for one simple reason.  Several years ago I went to a yard sale and bought this huge box of fabric.  It was well over 20 yds.  The lady who was putting on the yard sale told me she was a school teacher and she used this fabric as a backing on her corkboard in her class room.   Every time a new event would happen or a season change or holiday would come along she would rush off to the fabric store and buy a new background.  She was now selling the fabric because she was retiring from teaching to spend more time with her family and children.

I just wanted to give you a little background of the fabric and why I named the quilt what I did.  She was such a sweet lady.

Anyways..... I started this quilt (which I really should call it a throw for the living room sofa.) on December 26 and just finished it yesterday morning before work.

This is just a little pictorial from start to finish!






















It was all sewn and created under the watchful eye of our little "Loki".

Until next time....Happy Sewing!  Seam Ripper Joe
