June OMG Monthly Goal

My June OMG goal is both small and lofty at the same time. Small because I am working with just seven 6-1/2" square blocks, and lofty because my June is a little full as I pack for a yearlong move to Florida, deal with the end of school, and plan Vacation Bible School! July will be quieter, right?! 

Anyway, back in November, our family spent 4 days at my sister-in-law's house in Massachusetts. I decided to be fun crafty aunt, so I brought supplies for an art project and for decorating turkey cookies. 

I brought a bag of solid scraps with fusible web on them and 6-1/2" white squares. I gave each kid (ranging from age 11 to 3) a square and let them create their own fused quilt block. We shared 3 scissors. It was fun to see what they created! 

Here are the kids (my three, plus three nieces and a nephew) with their finished blocks. They had a great time, and I was impressed with how much imagination and thought went into each block. 

We'll be seeing those same cousins at the beach in July, so my goal is to transform those 7 blocks into a wall hanging for the cousins to take home. Wish me luck! 

And just for fun...this is what the crafting table (aka the kitchen island) looked like:

  1. What a fun idea, and great way to spend time with the kids. Good creative fun. Looking forward to seeing the wall hanging.
