A couple of weeks ago I sign up to decorate Miss A's teacher door as Appreciation Week. Since our elementary school is the house of the super stars I decided to go with the same theme. I came up with this:
I also made star cookies, but silly me I forgot to take pictures oh well life happens.

Thank you so much for your books, my kids love them. Their favorite part is when Daddy reads to them because he puts such an effort, I think just the way you intended it to be.
Our new best time favorite is Green Eggs and Ham especially for Miss A. She is just starting to read. For me it was hard at first and I really thought it was a great tongue twister for non- English speaking born peeps just like me, but this week I saw the light, yep everything was clear. Dear Miss A said:
"I'll read to you (Miss G feeling sick) Green eggs and ham"
I said: "How come? You cannot read that? It's too long, you know?"
"Yes, I know" She answered, "but it has all my sight words, so I can read it all day long."
So she did, she read it all by herself to little Miss G accompanied by Miss K...
So you see Dr. Seuss, you have made this momma proud for I have a little one that wants to read, tongue twisters to me, yet so fluent to her.
Now I know it is not for me, but for little readers just like Miss A.
Miss A's, Miss G's and Miss K's proud Momma

First I am going to talk about the back.
I decided to make it a bit interesting so I made a block with this design:
just a black square in the middle with white around and another border of black. I did it with the leftovers I had at hand.

Thursday, March 1, 2012
These blocks are the same design so it is really one design today for two blocks.
You will need 33 main fabric squares (black) and 16 background squares (white)
Now to sew them as a chain and save thread I will show you a technique Darlette taught me whilst making the Tokyo Subway Map quilt.
Place your squares on the table according to the block pattern. You will count your columns 1 to 7
Sew on the east side of the squares first row G, then F, E and so on sew chain one by one closely. Do not trim. Press to one side and you will have something like this:
You are not clipping any rows. Sew each column to each row until you finish all the columns and you will end with 7 rows connected.
Start sewing each row and you will end with your first block.
Congratulations you have done your first 2 blocks! You will have something like This:
