Just One More...

... Quilted Notebook cover.  This time for our school's Reception Class teacher who has announced that she is retiring at the end of this school year.



Now Mrs Z is quite eclectic and can be seen in school most days wearing paisley or cow print with bright neon leg warmers and plastic croc shoes!  But the kids love her sense of style and colour and my boys always used to come home and say things like; 'mummy why don't you wear glow in the dark socks?'!!!

Even though my boys aren't in her class this year, I have worked in her class nearly everyday this school year so I decided to make her a little leaving pressie too.

In conjunction with the Kate Spain Blog Hop hosted by Blossom Heart Quilts (I'm multi-tasking and killing two birds with one stone here!) I made my latest quilted notebook cover with a couple of my Central Park scraps.

If you haven't seen my tutorial for these notebook covers, you can find it here.


I used a lovely bright blue for the inside and a coordinating ribbon for the bookmark.


And here's the back.  So simple and yet so pretty and functional.

I hope it's funky enough for Mrs Z!

Hope you're all having a great weekend!
