Hobby Day at School

Sorry no photos...although Mr Day took some video....I told him strictly only to video quilts, not me!

Anyway, I had a 20 minute talk with the Year 3,4 and 5's to talk about my quilting. I took in about 7 of my quilts, some of the designs on graph paper, and a sample of wadding. Alexander and one of the Year 5 boys helped hold up the quilts for me as I talked about them.

I talked about how I had been quilting for about 17 years, and how I went from a simple drawing from a sheet, to the final product. The kids asked some really great questions, and I really enjoyed talking about my quilts (if you are a frequent reader of this blog, you will know that is the case!) One of the teachers later asked me if I would teach her to quilt, and she said some of the other teachers would be interested as well. So, I need to think about this one a bit more, and see how many would be really serious about it. Below is one of the quilts that I did take along with me. As a thankyou gift, I was given a box of Quality Street Chocolates...yum! :)
