Julie Belz from Ellsworth reported on a fun program they had last week:
In an American Girl Adventures Program last Saturday, they talked about Kirsten, who lived during pioneer days, making a signature quilt with her friends. A local quilter did a program for on the history of pioneer quilts and what the symbolism of various quilt blocks. Each girl signed their own signature block, and the quilter will put it together for us to hang in the library.
Julie put together quilt kits with the 4-patch design for each of the girls to make for thier doll so they all handstitched their doll quilt at the end of the program. The girls were mezmerized by the program and were very excited to create their own doll quilt. Some of the girls finished thier quilt but most got thier quilt top done and the backing pinned on before they left. It was a really great program!
