SEWING is fun, especially when a project can be completed in one day! On Wednesday, July 23, 2014 that’s exactly what eight youth and four adults did. They made a beautiful, color coordinated, lap quilt. To make the project, the backing fabric is fused to the batting, then strips of fabric are sewed to both the backing and batting. Quilt as you go. After all the strips are sewed on, the binding is attached and that completes the project.
Some of the youth said that they were going to put it on their bed, some said that they would cuddle up in it and one said she might hang it on the wall. The group of sewers had a great time participating in the class. A special thank-you goes out to Betty Gregory, Macon County Family and Community Educator (FCE) for spending the day helping everyone with the project.
