Hello everyone! I spent last evening with my daughter's girl guide troupe. I had two quilts ready for them to put together. They spread out the backing fabric and the batting then added the quilt top and tied one using embroidery thread - it was chaos! Some of the girls tried their hand at hand quilting...it was a bit of a challenge for them but they did seem to enjoy themselves.

|I made a few split-nine patches for this one.|
|Here's the quilt all done and ready to be put together.|
|Here are some more of the houses the girls made. I was going to put them all together in one quilt, but that would have been too much, so I will end up making three more quilts using three or four of the houses in each.|
|Here's a better view of their handiwork. Bear in mind they are 9 - 11 year old girls.|
|Too sweet - a thank you card and picture from the girls.|
