The fifth grade quilt is underway after over a month of exploring the Underground Railroad coded message quilts through a digital quilt design (thought to be a myth but such a cool idea!) now on display throughout the Lafayette building. We also looked at quilts from before and during the Civil War and explored the stories behind their creation.
We spent 2 class periods hand stitching pieces of a North Star pattern for our annual 5th grade quilt that we will sell to raise money for Lafayette at the auction in March. Just today we began working on the machines during open art! Look how far we've come already! Excitement abounds and the momentum is palpable!!!
