“A Guide for Quilting Fanatics” resource page

Today I received an email from Barbara Hayes of AfterSkoolKids.org. The website provides resources for “how to productively use afterschool time.” Barbara is also a 4th Grade teacher, and her students are working on an extra-credit quilt project. One of the students found our SBQG Links page as well as another resource page to share with us — “A Guide for Quilting Fanatics“. I’ve added the new resource page to our Links page, and I’ve found a number of interesting websites already! A brief history of Yo-Yo quilts, paper craft quilts for kids, and the Academy of Quilting. Thank you to Barbara’s student for suggesting this link to us, and I want to send best wishes to everyone in the classroom as they continue their quilt project! Happy quilting!
