My 7th Graders Blocks


Here is a picture of some of the blocks my 7th graders are making. I call it Wonky Nine Patch. I posted a picture of a quilt I made from that pattern in an earlier blog. The kids are really having fun with it. Now, I have to buy some fabric for the sashing, border, and backing. I really enjoy doing this with the kids. I think I'm going to make this a yearly tradition with my students.

  1. Please tell your class for me that I LOVE their quilt. Who gets to keep it? It really looks like they had a great time making it.

  2. We are donating the quilt to the auction at our church festival this fall. I'm hoping it will go for a good price!

  3. Those blocks look great. Don't you love the enthusiasm the kids have for trying new stuff. Let's hope you planted a quilt bug in a few of them.

  4. I layered the quilt and started quilting it in my classroom so the kids could watch. They were really facinated by the quilting process. Maybe there are a few future quilters in the bunch...
