Title: Warm Winter Quilts

Description: This project is focused on the theme of quilts and came
as a result of reading the story 3The Quiltmaker1s Gift2 which is a
wonderful story about the value of being generous. Participating classes

will read stories centered around the theme of quilts. Many quilts have
story to tell. Therefore, each student in the class will create their
paper quilt square and will write to tell about the particular design,
shapes or pictures that they used when creating their square. The class

will create a quilt from these squares, take a picture of the class
and send it to the project coordinator along with the student writing.
Pictures can be taken with a digital camera or taken with a regular
and sent to the project coordinator to be scanned. Student writing can
sent via e-mail. All student work will be presented on the following web

site which is currently under construction:
