Texas A&M Agrilife Extension

Fall 2014/Winter 2015

 
With skills that have brought Texans warmth and comfort for generations, 4-H Club students have used quilting to make a difference through charities such as Project Linus and Quilts of Valor. Six student-made quilts were exhibited in "Texas 4-H Quilts and Student Masterpieces" at the Institute of Texan Cultures in Fall 2014.
 
As an extension of clothing and textiles exploration, 4-H students may choose to add quilt design and construction to their skills. They may submit their quilts for judging in the A&M AgriLife Extension’s 2014 4-H Quilt Challenge Contest and Community Service Project, before the quilts are distributed to the charitable recipients.
 
Through Project Linus, 4-H members can become "Blanketeers" by creating new, handmade, washable blankets to be given as gifts to seriously ill and traumatized children, ages zero to 18. Through Quilts of Valor, the students may offer comfort to service members and veterans who have served in combat and been touched by war.
