Having a terrific time this week and next, with some sweet teenage girls at a residential camp nearby. I was invited to help them learn quilting. We are working on Gees Bend style, simple improvisational quilts, using a pillow turn method and tying to finish. Here are some photos of our progress and materials and tools. I am getting tickled watching them get so excited about these pieces. It is so fulfilling to watch them learn and create with pride. They have lots of donated fabrics to work with.
We also have sewing machines to use, both new and old. Guess which ones have the fewest problems?
