Girl Scout Block

We made a little progress on the Girl Scout Troop quilt today.
Catherine finished her block!

Each girl in the troop designed her own block (or selected one from a book), then chose fabric from my stash and set about constructing it. They have all been surprised by how many details are involved with quiltmaking and how long it takes to construct their first block.

Catherine was intrigued by pressing options- press to one side or open?

The other completed blocks belong to Ashley A, Ashley M and Lily. We played with dying fabric with Kool Aid and some girls are using their fabric in their blocks. The pale yellow triangles in Ashley's block are from the piece she dyed.

Four down, eight to go! I think we have 4 or 5 in progress (cut out and some piecing done) and a couple more that have been designed and fabrics selected. I'd love to have it done for our guild show in October. Wish us luck!

They look great! I led a troop for thirteen years and miss it terribly!
