So-Together 11-Year-Old Sews Together Quilt

Sew TogetherConnecticut - "We call ourselves the 'Sew Together Gals' because we not only sew together, but we are so together!" exclaimed Peg Jacques, of the seven-member, local sewing group. The Sew Together Gals, Ms Jacques, Liz Arneth, Lori Jacques, Holly Walczak, Marian Wood, Frances Ashbolt, and Emily Ashbolt, have been meeting monthly to quilt since February of 2005.

"We do one quilt every year for charity," said Ms Jacques. Last year the Family Counseling Center was the recipient of the tercentennial-themed lap quilt they made. This year, the quilting crew is donating an 86-by-86-inch, queen-sized quilt to The Friends of C.H. Booth Library to be raffled off this summer.

The hand embroidered, machine-pieced quilt is all blue and white, with a lighthouse theme, said Ms Jacques. But one of the more unique things about this quilt is that one of its creators is only 11 years old.
