Little Bits

I've been slowly, slowly piecing my Snowball quilt, but had to interrupt my progress to work on a quilt for my first-grader's teacher, who is having a baby next month. I was inspired by crazymomquilt's Teacher Quilt, and worked with our awesome art teacher to have each kid decorate a quilt square with fabric markers. The theme is sea creatures, since its their topic of in depth study this year. They turned out really cute!

I'm adding some Heather Ross Mendocino borders and just picked up this great red and orange Michael Miller Clown Stripe for the binding today. The class baby shower is next Friday, so I need to go finish this up!

The binding fabric is in the center, and of course I was tempted to pick up just a few fat quarters to add to my collection. I love these colors together so much! I almost want to use them in something all together, or maybe work them into my red & pink stars quilt or.... The possibilities are practically endless and all delicious!
