This quilting project is designed to teach techniques and skills in making quilted, appliquéd or patch-worked items for home or personal use. Youth choosing to do special projects would complete an Independent Study Project.
Beginning quilting project available to youth that will teach about, “What is quilting and piecing?” It will help them select their fabrics, learn how to cut and stitch the quilt top as well as finishing the quilt. Some basic patterns will be included in this project for them to start on.
