I had to do it!

I promised my students last year that we would paint a "trailer quilt" to go on the outside of the "mobile learning unit" in which I teach. We never did get around to it, but I remained convinced that I needed my own painted quilt.

SO--I painted one inside the classroom on the wall--6 by 6 feet in the school colors of gold and purple. It's prettier in person--they always are.
The funny thing is--not a single student has asked me what it is. Go figure.

BTW if you have tried to comment in the past and were asked to create an account, I think I changed that setting so that anyone can comment. Took me long enough . . .


  1. Pretty cool. I like the 3D effect of the shading.
    (More apparent in the full-size image.) Must be a bit of the ol' engineer showing through.

  2. Actually, the 3-D effect is part of the design. It's called, "Courthouse Steps," and is supposed to look as if it descends towards the center. Good observation!
