Redoubt North School Programme

This year I have been back at Redoubt North School to teach the Year 7 and 8 Students
to make their own single bed quilts.

This is my third year of doing this programme.
These students are 11 or 12 years old and they make the same quilt as 
our shop Easy Retro Beginners Adult Quilt Class.

I couldn't do this programme without the support of the 24 customers who
purchase the quilt top fabrics for their sponsored student. Or my wonderful suppliers
who help with batting, backing fabrics and threads.

Step one - making the blocks

Twelve boys and twelve girls are participating.

Step two - arranging the blocks to make the quilt top.

Step Three - sewing the top together.

Step four  and five - quilting and binding and they do it all on their own quilts.

Twenty four finished quilts . . . . . . 

. . . . .  ready to go home to be loved and keep them warm and cozy for the rest of winter.

These students have worked so hard and learnt so much over the six week programme.
It has been an honour to work with them and watch them gather new skills.
Thanks you to everyone who participated to make this special event happen for these
wonderful young people.
