Quilted Story Blocks from "The Quiltmaker's Gift"

Quilted Story Blocks from "The Quiltmaker's Gift"

This .pdf contains complete directions for making each block featured in "The Quiltmaker's Gift" byJeff Brumbeau and Gail De Marcken. Each block is 9" square, making it easy to create a fun quilt for your students to study. Help them to see that different fabrics in the same pattern can yield different appearances. If you haven't read this heartwarming book about giving and caring, you're in for a treat! This should be on the shelf of every K-2 classroom. And the completed quilt can be used as a reward - get 10 stars on your reward chart and you get to be wrapped in a quilt on a cold day in January! If you don't quilt, perhaps you have some eager room moms who can help! A unique project for World Book Day!
