I'm a 4-H volunteer - thinking of writing a small local project on quilting with strips, charms - basically all home cut precuts. Thought I'd do a meeting (2 hr) for each - quick strip, bargello, rail fence, dp9 or 4 patch, machine quilt project, finishing - Achievement possibly have remaining blocks from each member put together into quilts to be tied and donated. Each member to produce either small wall hanging, table runner or two placemats as finished project. Also thought I'd solicit fabric/scrap donations from other quilters or sewers so we'd not have to buy too much and keep cost to members lower.
Member ages 9 - 21 -- want them to learn to use sewing machine & cutting tools, sew straight seams, pressing, maybe spark interest in sewing other items like clothing.
Any suggestions? Or have I lost my mind?
