contributed….Juneau County 4-H provides youth with a variety of interests to explore, learn, and develop skills. On Saturday, March 9, members of the 4-H dog obedience and agility project met with Millard’s Prairie Home and Community Educators (HCE) to piece a quilt. The HCE members pre-cut and numbered each brick of the “yellow brick road” quilt pattern to facilitate sewing the quilt top. Youth as novice sewers, were assisted by adults giving verbal directions and support to first sew each brick into a long strip of cloth and then to sew each long strip together. In less than two hours, the 4-H members had created a queen-sized quilt top. The next step is for youth to sew the outside banding onto the top and then it’s off to the machine quilter. When the quilt is ready, it will be displayed as widely as possible throughout the county to inspire you to purchase a raffle ticket. Other prizes will also be offered. Proceeds of the raffle will purchase equipment to support the dog – and youth – training project.
