Friendship Quilts
~ Lori Jackson

One year we did a quilting unit in December (focusing on literature, geometry and culture). One thing we did was send a 12 x 12 inch square of white paper home with an envelope containing construction paper scraps, markers and glue and asked each family to design a quilt square for our "Friendship Quilt." Then each student helped to explain the square design and their explanations were recorded and displayed by the paper mural quilt we created.
