Children Sewing Quilts
Updated: Jan 11, 2021
One of the larger projects that the children learn to sew in their annual sewing class is a patchwork quilt.
About 3 months into the sewing year once they have mastered the machine and made a pillow, pouch and bag they take on a project that they will get much use from. They sew a bed sized patchwork quilt.
This is a project where they have many hours of sewing and ironing which they love to do. They learn to line up, sew straight and correctly use pins.
They then back the patchwork front, quilt it and then bind it.
They come to class and find a table overflowing with precut squares from sheets that I have spent the year purchasing from charity stores for their project.
They choose squares and I suggest that they make a random colored quilt.
The children have their own ideas of how to work. And this one is very organized. Everything has to be just so :)
Very specific colors in a very specific pattern.
Some choose blues and turquoise
Some choose pinks
