Little House Quilting Project for Kids and Their Favorite Grown-up
Saturday, October 31, 2009 10 am-2 pm
Like Laura Ingalls Wilder and her sisters, pioneer children were taught to make nine-patch quilt blocks as soon as they could sew with a needle. These quilts were made of what was on hand — often wool or old fabric cut from worn and mended clothing. You and your partner will learn to piece together a four- or nine-patch quilt square, using simple skills like hand quilting, using a hoop and two fabric layers with batting in between. You'll take home your project to complete into a doll blanket or pillow top, plus have the memory of satisfying time spent working together with someone special to you.
