I added a strip of blackboard looking fabric, then went to town with quilting. I detailed the teacher, then stippled all around her in white, and finally used black for the border and chalkboard fabric. I used a bright red for the binding, and voila! I had a lot of fun working on this and definitely will make some more - I have so many ideas in my head for when I have some time. It's instant gratification to make such a lovely little quilt and be able to finish it so quickly!

Now all I have to do is quilt the border and bind it. Oh, and add a label.
And here is a frugal quilting tip for you. If you want to make a quilt, but don't want to spend any money yourself, volunteer to work on a project for your guild or other organization. They buy the fabric, you get all the fun, and then they make money on the tickets! Winning situation for everyone!!
Have a happy and weekend and take some time for making something you love!

I am so happy to be back to doing some fun quilting for now, so I hope to come up with a lot of new finished things in the next month or two. Those UFOs have been piling up and it's time to get them all finished, plus that my fabric cupboard is overflowing and needs to be reduced by a large amount so that I can open the door without being in danger of my life!
Here's to seeing more finished projects!
