Celebrating Texas with quilt sqares @ WBCL

March 3,2010
Family arts & crafts tackled an old skill as a group with lots of inter-generational participation. Using some of the giant stash of donated fabric and a great kids book Quilting for Fun we were able to create a unique quilt square on a paper background. This group is not always old enough to attempt stitching so we used glue.
For safety parents and older siblings manned the sewing scissors and did the cutting. This did generate a few grumbles but the process of fabric selection and fitting soon won out. Everyone enjoyed the stories of quilts made of old clothes and old flour sacks.
Crafts class meets every week at the Wells Branch Community Library.
