Sharing Quilting at the Mary Lin School

Friday, I spent a delightful day sharing the art of quilting at the Mary Lin School as part of their Black History celebration.  236 students in grades 3 -5 participated.

The Clara Ford Foundation organized quilters to make quilt blocks so that each student would have a small quilt to take home. I did a brief lecture about how to make a quilt, and the students spent the rest of the time creating their own quilt design in the center sqaure.

My book shelf quilt Fulton County Attorney Law Library was on hand to amaze the students and remind them of the importance of reading. It was a very good day.
