I've had the pleasure of working with a class of 4th and 5th graders at an elementary school here in town, who are making tessellation patterns into quilts.  A mom to one of the students is a Hip Stitch customer, and as she was chatting with me one day a few weeks ago about what her daughter's class was doing, I wasted no time volunteering to help.  This has been so darn fun - getting to know the kids, helping them take their drawn designs and planning how to do their quilts, having them figure out how much fabric was needed, then helping cut and to the point they are now:  making their design boards, and next up: sewing!

Here are a few pictures of where I've been a few hours a week:

So fun to see these little minds at work!
