I’ve not pieced sashing before so it was a new experience!

I made it from the “School Days” collection from American Jane.

There’s not a quilt anywhere he doesn’t want to get up on!!

I like to take the photos out on the deck in natural light, and he loves to snooze out there!!

Do you like the black rickrack and star buttons I added?

I wanted some new school themed throw pillows for my couch and two chairs in the family room…

so, I took some teacher tote bags I had for years and ripped them apart,

backed them with some fun teacher prints from my stash and made 4 pillows!!

  3. What a good use of your retired tote bags! No sense in letting them lay around, they are used to the work. I like the quilt, rickrack and label, all so fun ~

  14. I (sadly) didn't get my Schnibble done this month but, of all those posted, yours is my favorite. The fabrics you used, along with the rickrack, really made the quilt!
