Hello, Mad Modders…I thought I was posting but am having doubts….has anyone seen a post by me in the last few days?

Quilts visit first grade

Earlier this month, I made a quilt presentation to four first grade classrooms at Mendota Elementary.  It was lots of fun and the kids were delightful.  They have been studying quilting from the art AND math perspective and were most attentive.  Later this winter we hope to do some kind of project where each child can make some type of quilt block….anyone interested in assisting?
This was the quietest school I've ever been in before!

I gave them a taste of what goes into a quilt…including the inspirations and designs.  I had an assortment of quilts to show, including Jennifer Falkowski's wonderful corduroy quilt made of slacks and including the pockets!

A few things:

It seems everyone has a lot going on right now so the block for the December Block Lotto will be put on hold. You will have until the January meeting to make these lotto blocks. I'm hoping the turn out is spectacular!

The meeting this Thursday, December 12th, will be informal. You are welcome to bring an appetizer or treat but please try to keep them as un-messy as possible. We don't want to wear out our welcome at Stitcher's Crossing :)

Mug rugs will be exchanged at this upcoming meeting! Hope they are coming along!
