The 2009 2010 5th grade class

I would like to introduce to you - the new 5th grade class of Quilt of Valor Makers! This last friday we started cutting a new batch of Quilts of Valor. This is a big class - there were about 23 to 24 kids in each group cutting and they did an awesome job.
Not only did they work well together, they also stuck to the task of measuring, making lines and cutting their fabrics.

There was also a football game looming - based on the number of jerseys present!!
This is my 5th year doing this project - and I finally have a 5th grader again - Whoo hoo - someone to eat lunch with in the cafeteria!! ( he is in the Red and Blue striped shirt)

Can you see the QOV hanging in the background? We try to put a new one up every couple of days. The kids get a chance to study it, check out the quilt pattern, the quilting designs and the label!! We LOVE to know where these quilts come from.

Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend. I am almost caught up on my Sew Along Quilt. This is a good sign!! And - you will be loving how it turns out - I know it!!

And just LOOK at how hard they are concentrating - not ONE of them is fooling around - they are all totally engrossed - what a GOOD lesson, not only for them, but for adults!
