This past week, I spent two days at 4-H Quilt Camp. Our quilt guild in town, Grayson Country Quilters teams up with 4-H to teach girls 8 to 12 how to sew and make a quilt. Our guild has co-sponsored this event for the past seven years. I had two sweet girls who were so good at sewing straight lines that I didn't have much to do the first day. Instead, I ended up cutting about two dozen aprons for Going West Outfitters. I guess this means I will be sewing a lot of aprons in the next week or so!
Take a look at the cute quilt tops these two young girls completed. They will be quilted and displayed in our local quilt show on the 4th of July!
I recently read an article that stated that the pioneer women especially enjoyed wearing yellow! I was completely surprised by that statement. When I think of yellow, I think of SUNSHINE!!! I have friends who love wearing yellow. For me personally, I look awful in yellow. But, if you are one of the lucky one who enjoying wearing yellow or have a sunshine personality, Going West Outfitters definitely has yellow outfits!
Teapots... Who would have ever thought that Teapot fabric would become pioneer clothing? Well, I did. I thought about all of my English Ancestors who walked across the plains. They were from England. They were tea drinkers. I thought this fabric was a great way to honor those ancestors. Maybe as you experience Trek, the teapots will remind you of your English Ancestors!
