Kid's Quilting Camp

Every Summer here at Scottie Dog Quilts Liz holds Kid's Quilting Camp. We had an enthusiastic group this past week. They did what adult quilters do: they sewed, they ate, they laughed and joked around and they praised each others' projects. Here's a picture of the girls: In Kid's Quilting Camp the projects vary. One time it might be a bag or a throw, pillowcases, purses, wall hangings and more. This time Liz designed a darling paper foundation pieced wall hanging with gnomes, mushroom houses, trees & bushes. The Michael Miller border fabric really makes it, doesn't it! I'm hoping we make this into a pattern for sale also.All the girls were careful sewers and I was amazed how quickly they got foundation paper piecing down. It's kind of a left brain, right brain thing and for adults can be hard to grasp. But these girls "got it" right away.
Here are their blocks on day two:One of the surprises at Kid's Quilt Camp was that my daughter & granddaughter, Beka & Shiloh got to come on Thursday. We had to keep Beka's very quick visit quiet as she was surprising a friend for a Birthday party.Sydney loved to push Shiloh around in her shopping cart! Can't wait for the next Kid's Quilting Camp.
