Friday was the last day of Kid's Quilting Camp for Summer 2011~ we had a good time together!
The girls made "Magic 9-Patch" quilts, using 5" squares (...yes, I had to work in Charm Squares somehow!) The girls sewed together nine 9-Patch blocks. Then I cut all the blocks in half both directions, the girls rearranged the blocks and sewed them back together again! I did all the cutting in this class, but we had a discussion about rotary cutter safety, do's and don'ts. We added borders, layered quilt sandwiches, did a "pillowcase-turn" finish, turned the quilt right-side out, closed up the hole by hand and had a discussion about how to quilt the layers together. Everyone went home with a nearly finished lap-sized quilt, ready to be quilted (in just 15 hours of class time together!) AWESOME! Great job girls~ Tamra
