Orem Reads Activity

Activity 3: Make Something

“At that minute Jo was particularly absorbed in dressmaking; for she was mantua-maker general to the family, and took especial credit to herself because she could use a needle as well as a pen.” 

Chapter 29, “Calls”

ACTIVITY

Try your hand at knitting or embroidery, sew a hot pad (using Civil War era reproduction fabric), or color a Little Women-themed coloring page. If you’d like to share what you’ve made, use #OremReads2020.

Once you’ve completed this activity, find the corresponding sticker from your sticker sheet and add it to your quilt. Email a photo of the finished quilt to oplprograms@gmail.com by October 17 to be entered into a drawing for Little Women prizes.

QUILTING HISTORY

The popular Log Cabin block first appeared in the 1860s and brings to mind Abraham Lincoln’s homespun roots and Harriet Beecher Stowe’s landmark work Uncle Tom’s Cabin. This block always features a red center, which signifies the hearth of the home.
