Quilting Collaborations - Episode 3
Happy Tuesday, all! Today I want to share a blast from the past quilting collaboration starring yours truly as a 10 year old!
The collaboration was part of a Girl Scouts project with my troop. I can’t remember the exact intention, but I know that we were all tasked with making a square for a baby quilt. My best guess is that the quilt was to be donated to a baby in need, given the general spirit of the Girl Scouts.
The project was my first experience with quilting, and I had completely forgotten about it until recently when another former member of our troop posted the picture of all of us with our finished product online.
I don’t know which square was mine, but I do remember that we all used a mixture of embroidery, fabric markers, fabric paint, and imagination to make the beauty pictured below.
Look at all of us! We were so proud! Any guesses about which beaming 10 year old is me?
Ok, I won’t keep you guessing for long. That wouldn’t be fair! I’m the one in the middle behind the quilt with the short hair. The hair style was short to match my mom, because she was (and still is!) my idol.If collaborative quilting made 10-year-old me smile that big, I should probably give it another try soon, don’t you think?!
