Carla is a super amazing woman. She cut those quilt kits in like 5 minutes (OK, so it was probably like 5 hours, but I wasn't there so what do I know) and had them all organized and given to the middle school home ec teacher so they could all be sewn together.
All of the other projects we have come up with since have fallen flat. We are waiting for Accuquilt to come out with a special die we have asked for. They have it for the Go!, but that won't last for our purpose. We do everything on steroids (aka mass produced) and while the Go! is nice for home quilting, in case you haven't noticed, we make quite a lot of quilts. So, we need it for the Studio and supposedly the designer of the die has asked for it to be put out for the Studio. Hopefully that will happen before the school year is over. It's the Rag circle die, so the kids can make the quilts and have them all quilted when they are finished with them.
I bet they could sew the fleece rag quilts too. Those are pretty easy to sew and just take a bit of patience to not catch the fringe in the foot. And I keep finding more fleece bits in buckets in the garage. Who knew I was a fleece hoarder?
