I have taught quilting in 4-H and the kids really enjoyed it. Had several who had their project in the county fair. Two of my older girls had quilts in our local quilt show and one boy of 10 yrs old had a wall quilt in the show. I was in charge of the quilt show and added two youth categories just so they could enter their projects. That was about 10 yrs ago, and the categories are still listed.
I've taught my gr-grandson to make quilts also. He is only with me for a month each summer. I think he has three quilts in the making. Maybe this summer he will at least one of them finished.
