<STRONG>Prepare quilt squares</STRONG>. To make a uniform class quilt, cut fabric squares in the same size. Measure a 6 in. x 6 in. (15 cm x 15 cm) template on poster board. Cut it out with Crayola Scissors. Draw around the template and cut as many fabric squares as you need. Cut a large piece of fabric to display everyone’s fabric squares.
<STRONG>. Decorate your squares.</STRONG> Create a border around each one with your favorite pattern using Crayola Markers. Choose a favorite family tradition and draw it in the center of your fabric square.
<STRONG> Assemble the quilt</STRONG>. Decorate a border around the background fabric. Stick four small, hook and loop fastener tape on the back of each square and on the larger piece of fabric to attach the squares. Explain your square to all of your classmates and their families, if possible.
