Quilting with Kids

It's that time of year when I start gearing up for 4-H quilting camp. Organizing volunteers will be the big effort now that we have a location secured. Our volunteers are the people who make our camps a special place each year. Without them our youth participants would not have the assistance they need to complete their large lap sized quilts.

We held our orientation and field trip for 4-H quilting camp on Friday. This year, we will have 8 girls making pillowcases and quilts starting on Monday. They all selected great fabrics so be prepared to see some wonderful quilts! We had to switch locations for the camp this year so we can't accommodate the usual ten participants. Too bad because we had 2 more who wanted to join us.

One of our participants is attending for her 3rd year. She is making her brother's graduation gift. Her quilt is going to be queen size with frogs as the theme in the picture blocks. Last year she made the single bed size quilt in the lower left of the 2006 pictures. The rest of the girls will make our usual large lap size simple log cabin quilt.
