Keepers of the Home... meeting 4

At this weeks meeting the girls started a quilt, a small version for a doll, to learn about quilting.  We are also going to be making quilts for babies to give to a shelter or somewhere like that... but these bandanna baby quilts are our practice.

First the girls had to iron their bandanna's--- Kate has ironed before but doesn't really know how and Emily had never ironed before!  Learning this skills is part of the reason we are doing this!

sorry Brenda I have NO idea what your face is doing right there!
Next the girls learned to cut out their batting to fit their material...
and last they all sewed on the machine!


The two older girls seem pretty serious.. the younger girls I think liked pushing the pedal!  :0)
We will finish them up next time we meet....
