The 2017 5th grade quilt melds our learning about the role of quilts in American history, the creation of digital quilts, and the basic (and useful) skill of learning to sew! This year, inspired by our focus on embracing diversity, we have created a rainbow quilt using the flying geese pattern. This beauty below will be signed on the back by all our Lafayette 5th graders and auctioned off to the lucky high bidder at this weekend's Lafayette fundraising auction!!!
