The wonkiness of some blocks is primitive yet so charming.
The girls made 6 quilts using different art concepts- Contrast, Unity, Movement, Pattern, Balance and
The students designed and sewed their own blocks. They tied their quilts with embroidery floss and the teacher put the binding on.
They will be displayed at the school before they are donated.

I wasn't involved in this class but I did watch them work once. It was nice to see them problem solving with measurements and placement of their chosen fabrics.

Because quilting has been such a positive thing in my life, I was glad to see a new generation introduced to it.
