Organized by: Amelia Island Quilt Guild
Project Organizer: Linda Martin
Title: Give Peace a Chance
Participants: Jamie Thompson, Unit Director, Miller Freedom Boys and Girls Club and Ms. Alice, art teacher.
Materials and Techniques Used: The Amelia Island Quilt Guild partnered with the Miller Freedom Boys and Girls Club of Nassau County, FL to create panels for the Dream Rocket. The guild supplied 12.5 inch blocks which were sewn together into panels. The Boys and Girls Club summer campers created artwork using fabric markers, paint, stencils, etc. The artwork reflects the camper’s dreams and represents the mission of the Boys and Girls Club, “To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.”
