Brownie Troop #9919 from Vail created this amazing quilt after learning that “Arizona [was] 99 years old” and about to turn 100, just like the Girl Scouts. The girls, all 1st and 2nd graders, started the project last year making their own potholders and then sewing them all together. The girls were active in the design of the quilt choosing their own fabric selections allowing the girls to express their own view of Arizona. Although a few girls suffered needle pricks here and there, the quilt making was a memorable experience and they enjoyed creating it together. To finish up the requirements for the quilt badge, the Troop attended a quilt show and enjoyed seeing all the different pieces and beautiful colors.
“I like the colors because they remind me of the Arizona flag.”
“The quilt was fun because it reminds me of the Arizona mountains, the flag and Tucson.”
