Quilts
Colored shapes of cloth are sewn together to create beautiful patterns.

Traditionally, quilts were used for warmth as well as for learning important sewing skills. Often communities worked together using leftover pieces of material to design quilts celebrating special events such as births, weddings, anniversaries, and political events.

Design your own quilt by using the available shapes and colors!
