Each teacher picks a book as the theme for their basket. The basket is filled with fun little items that correlate with the book. Once I found out the title of the book, I knew I didn't have anything to go along with it. So I started searching for fabric. I finished the quilt for my daughter's class on Friday and decided that I should probably make one for my son's class too. (CRAZY!) Again, a quick search of the Internet and calling a few shops and I had the second fabric in my hand. I just barely finished sewing the binding on and it's off to school this morning.
I didn't get a picture of the first quilt, but this is the fabric I chose:
|Dino Dudes- Michael Miller|
to go with this book:

I managed to snap a quick pic of the second quilt this morning (in horrible light) just before I sent it off to school with my boy.
I decided to go simple and sweet. Wholecloth print with a simple border. The other quilt was done the same way with a fun lime green fabric for the border.
This is an up-close picture of the Monster print:
|Monsters- Michael Miller|
This fabric is SO FUN! I really like the dinos too, but the Monsters go perfectly with many of the prints from Hall of Fame! I used the Red numbers on the border, the blue turf on the bunding, and the yellow spots for the backing.

Now that those are done- back to my regularly scheduled quilt related work. :o)
