The Quilt Rat
Lately, I have been experimenting with adding colour to black fabric. My original plan was to discharge the black and then add colour back in................this stuff will not discharge. It is good quality quilters cotton but for some reason it does not want to discharge. I've tried discharge paste, gel bleach, and even hairdressing streaking solution.........nothing worked.

In a middle school art class, I have students who have completed the project on day two, and students who won't finish until day seven. This leaves a lot of down time for students and after 13 years of teaching (currently my 7th in middle) I've finally devised a plan. Some options students always have are to play board games that I have purchased at goodwill over the years, or they can read, free-draw or just sit and talk with their friends. However, I do have some more anti-social students…
