We Are The World
We are creating a quilt in our Casa using applique. The quilt is for an upcoming silent auction at our school. The center consists of the continents in our Montessori puzzle map colors and the border is green with animals of the world. We ironed the continent fabric and animal fabric onto paper with a fusible bond and then cut out the objects and ironed them onto the water fabric and forest fabric. We now are in the process of applique, which is taking a long time! The children are doing a great job though, and we will be sad to part with our winter project.
I am a Montessori teacher who just completed my 10th year. I feel lucky to have found a calling that incorporates so many of my interests: music, theater, art, literature, and sports. I adore singing, tennis, and gardening. I have three fabulous children ranging in age from 14-21 (all Montessori-educated). Montessori opened up the world for me. I found out I love practical life and making beautiful things, which I have dubbed "Jane Austen Time."
