new project.

Happy Sunday all!  

I'm quite excited to share bits of a project with you.

This week I am starting a new project with Jr/Sr high KIDS in the NYC area, including Queens, Brooklyn, Westchester, and NJ... It will be a surprise QUILT for a very interesting person, and all the great work this person has done in our area.  

Since it's a surprise, I can't say much more about it. But I will be posting a few pictures as I go along.   The finished quilt will be given in the fall.  I will be helping kids make squares using 5-6 different techniques, that I will incorporate, later,  into the quilt..  

Kids minds go to such a special creative place, I am excited to have the opportunity to work with them and to see what they create.

I have no idea what this quilt will look like, but the possibilities will be endless, and I look forward to their work, inspiring me, to create something special.

Enjoy your day!


  1. Sounds like a great project! So valuable for the kids to learn that they can make something wonderful with fabric.

  2. sounds great and like FUN!
    can't wait to see their houses :)

  3. How fun! I'm a bit envious as I have just started looking into possibilities for creating with kids next year.

  4. I have done several quilts with kids and they all seem to thoroughly enjoy the creative process, but more importantly love the outcome! Great fun for you and the kids!

  5. How great to work with young adults and see their creative minds come alive. Doesn't that background pattern just say "make me into a quilt".

  6. Looks like a fun project. Can't was to see it progress! Kids are really creative.

  7. what a great project for the kids. I love little houses!

  8. You have got to love teenagers. I was in high school for over 30 years. I envy what you are getting ready to do. I am anxious to see what you and the teens come up with.

  9. Ooooh, that does sound exciting, wishing you all the best with that. Looking forward to the finished project.

    : )

  10. so cool! I love your house better than mine! happy day!

  11. What FUN! I worked in the schools for years helping the kids learn basic sewing skills and finishing up with a quilt for the Auction to help fund the classes! They LOVED it and so did I! Whatever happened to Home Ec???

  12. You will be sewing many seeds.....and you all will reap many rewards! Wonderful project!!!
