This little photo montage quilt was begun by my students and teachers of Bluffview Montessori School in the spring of 2010. The classroom E2A--Upper Elementary Classroom A with myself as the lead teacher and assistant teachers, Susan Krageschmidt and Jena McCullough teaching children in 4th grade through 6th grade.
The picture on the right is the students with our dragon puppets that we made with In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre , HOBT who worked with the students for a one week residency. The students designed and created cooperatively with the help of two HOBT artists, these large puppets and then preformed a story about the importance of water for the whole school. It was very exciting!

Some of these students, I see around town. Some are getting ready to graduate from High School in the spring. What amazing students; what amazing times. This little quilt measures 14" x 14.75". The students helped with the stitching. I completed the quilt today with the binding and the hanging device on the back to hang it on the wall.
At my current school, Ridgeway Community School, we had a most amazing residency with In the Heart of the Beast and created a play called Pete's Great Adventure. Check out what happened!
