Quilting with Kids!

Quilting with KidsGood Morning, Quilters!

Sorry to have missed a Tuesday Tutorial this week–it’s been very busy around here!  We’ve been enjoying the beautiful Minnesota summer with family and friends and I’ve been working on a Sulky FREE webinar–(Mark your calendars — September 12th.  Sign up for the Sulky newsletter HERE to receive webinar notifications.)

Here’s a sneak preview of the project we will be making:
Quilting with Kids, Stick and StitchI LOVE TO STITCH

The webinar focuses on choosing the right thread for all your quilting needs while making a small wall hanging.

We will be using Sulky’s Stick ‘n Stitch to transfer the design onto fabric–and there will be PRIZES!!!

STICK ‘N STITCH

I love when I find a product that makes quilting easier–and Stick ‘n S makes pattern transfer as easy as pushing a button!

Simply print the pattern on to the dissoluble sheets–it runs through the printer with ease–then peel off the backing and stick it onto your quilt.

All you have to do is stitch over the lines!

Once all the stitching is complete, the sheet rinses away in minutes.

(Note–The sheet rinsed away in less than a minute, then it took a little coaxing to remove the ink from the printer. Soaking and a little rubbing did the trick!)

Stick and Stitch, Sulky

FAMILY CREATIVE TIME

When we had a little break in the action, I asked the kids for a few drawings….

Owls and turtles and snakes–Oh my!

I plan to print the line drawings onto the Stick ‘n Stitch to recreate their projects into mini quilts or wall hangings for their bedrooms.

(BTW-The leftover S ‘n Stitch can be used to carve pumpkins!)

What about YOU?  Do YOU ever quilt with kids?

What are YOUR favorite projects?

We’d LOVE to hear!
