It's Monday Made It time! For the first time I want to show you a "home" made-it. In January I started a new hobby - quilting! I have some friends who are quilters and they infected me with the bug. I grew up sewing, but had not done any sewing for years and had never tried quilting. Now I have finished my first quilt top. The pattern is called Disappearing Nine Patch and I have to say I'm really proud of it. I'm also working on a block of the month quilt and some other projects. Here's my finished top:
I just sent it off in the mail to be quilted on a long arm machine; when I get it back I'll just need to bind it. I tell my students that you can't do much of anything without math, and quilting was one of my real world examples last spring!
For my school project I'm going to direct you to a post I published yesterday. I made my own place value circles out of craft foam. It even comes with some free place value charts. Click the picture to see that post.
I can't wait to see what everyone else has been working on! Enjoy.
