Quilting for Hope

Quilting for Hope is the name of the class I am teaching at my daughter's school during the month of February. Each Tuesday afternoon I have the pleasure of spending a couple of hours with 11 eager and prolific young quilter-designers. It is a multi-age class, so the kids span in age from 8-12. To say I am enjoying this would be an understatement. What a pleasure it has been to help these children learn to serve others through quilting. The quilts they are designing will be donated to children who are staying at an emergency women and children's shelter in Toronto. I won't say more--I will let the pictures speak for themselves. (the students designed all of the tops by themselves-I gave a few suggestions-most of which were ignored :))

Oh it did my heart good to come on here and see all those beautiful quilts. The smiles, the "hard" thinking...been there, done that!!! I'm sure that has been fun for all. Bless you for doing it.
