… And Around It Goes.

A couple of years ago I wrote about things that go around after I let my students loose in my fabric stash.

It’s happened again. For the last month, one of the Year 8 classes at school has been working on a Business Studies unit. Many of them chose fabric items to make and sell and again I let them loose in my cupboards. Not just that but also spent hours before school and in lunchtimes supervising and suggesting. Then last week, a family friend gave me the contents of her mother’s sewing room.

There are so many beautiful scraps of patchwork fabric that I’m setting up a quilting group next term.

But funniest of all was this fabric. Can you spot it?

The exact blue-green seersucker that we were gifted 2 years ago returns to line another bag! I laughed and laughed.
