I am spending 12 hours today at a Quilting Bee as a mission project at my church. We are all making the "Quilt in a Day" style quilts so [in theory] we will have as many quilts finished by 8 pm tonight as there are people attending. We will see. We are using a simple design similar to the picture at right.
But it brings me to today's Quick Take.
Then go online, or go to a museum and show them the amazing hand sewn quilts of today or days gone by. As a final amazement... have them check out the stitching samplers hand stitched by young children of early days.
Depending on your children's interests:
--add two more wash cloths and with six sewn together they will have a very usable doll blanket.
--four wash cloths make a good dryer or window washer when helping clean the car.
