For the past 8 years or so a docent from the San Jose Quilt Museum has come to our school for a quilt presentation. It has always been a fun day for students. They learned the history and method of quilt making along with quilt vocabulary, they each created a quilt square using fabric markers, and heard the docent tell a story using well known quilt patterns as the "illustrations" for the story.
Unfortunately the program is no longer being offered. Luckily, one of my co-workers had photographed the different quilt patterns. After learning the name of each quilt pattern my students chose their favorite 3 and used 30 Hands or Sonic Pics to create a quilt story of their own.
