4-H Quilt Camp June 1-2

 One of my old loves resurrected this weekend, when I got to help teach young girls how to sew in a 4-H setting. That is where I first learned to sew, and I hope the 18 young people we introduced to quilt making, will also find much joy in it.  We had 17 girls and 1 brave young man participate in the camp.  The County 4-H leaders provided some break activities, and also lunch and snacks.  It was a great pairing of resources.

It was especially fun having Laurie come down to share the 2 days with Grandma! Nathan and Tammy brought the kids down Sunday, and we had a couple of play days with them and Ethan and Travis, before the camp began on Wed. We had several one-on-one teaching stations, and several who worked with two kids. Laurie's friend Nizhoni Lacy was also at our work station, and both girls did really well.

It was probably the funnest thing we've done through quilt guild all year; at least for me, and definitely for the girls as well.  What a great feeling of accomplishment they had after completing their first big block.

This is how Laurie's quilt top looked when finished.
