Daisy Scout Quilt Top

Grace is in Daisy Scouts.  For those of you that don't know, Daisies is before Brownies and is a great way to get the girls involved in Girl Scouts in Kindergarten.  May was my month to the host the meeting.  Of course it would have to be quilting related.  At the very least sewing.

My project, a whole lot of colorful Sharpie markers, fabric and willing artists.  The girls had a lot of fun.  They chatted and drew and colored and passed pens around.  While all of the coloring was going on, the lesson shared was that it's nice to do things for others without any strings attached.  The girls all earned their yellow petal as a result. 

Just a few pictures.

Once things settle down with all of the end of school year activities I will get the top quilted.  It will be donated to Project Linus.

I loved seeing this quilt at the guild meeting. Your daughter did a nice job showing it off! I had no idea you could use sharpies that way and your experiment with the alcohol was very cool.
