This is the second year of our summer day camp for kids and it's been a really awesome 6 weeks so far. If you aren't on Instagram you might have missed the photos from last week's Quilt Camp which are too awesome not to share on the blog. The kids learned not just one block but four traditional blocks! They picked out their fabrics, did the cutting and piecing and put it all together. There was handquilting and tying involved as well as some fabric painting for the kids who wanted to make sure everyone knew who's quilt this belonged to.
So proud of these 7 quilters! And excited that some of them are returning to Fashion Camp and Fiber Camp! It's so awesome that handcraft is actually something kids are not only excited about but can excel at. When I look at these pictures all I can see is the absolute joy and pride. The imperfections (can you believe someone pointed out to us that an 8 year old's points weren't perfect?) make these quilts that much more perfect.
