2017 School Programme

This year's Redoubt North School Programme is underway with a new project this year.

This is my sample - Trip Around he World in Elizabeth Hartman's Pond fabric range.
I can cut you a kitset if you would like to make a quick and easy quilt.
The squares were cut 6".

I have 26 students involved this year which takes our total to 100 quilts
made by 100 students. This the fourth year of the programme.

Each student makes their own quilt which they get to take home.
I have organised sponsorship for all the costs of the programme, as this 
school is in a low economic (decile) area. 

This Friday they planned the layout of their quilts.

There was lots of excitement as they opened their bags to reveal their fabrics 
and even more as their quilts took shape on the floor or table in front of them.

Then is was on to some accurate machine piecing and wow did they do well.

Some finished their first row and began piecing their second.

Back in a fortnight with more progress.
