Do you know the story of The Princess and The Pea? In Mrs S’s version of the story the Princess was very fussy and only agreed to marry the Prince if she could redecorate. She searched and searched for a great design for a quilt but could not really find what she wanted. Mrs S challenged us to create the perfect design for our fussy Princess. We use the Geoboard web app to start our design and MSPowerPoint to manipulate the design. Some of our designs are not quite finished but many of them can be seen in our Animoto.
Quilts can be made from small fabric pieces that are all joined together. The quilter starts off by making lots of blocks using a pattern and then joins all the blocks together. There are many designs published for quilters to use but most of them start with simple shapes like squares and triangles and the complicated pattern is made when the quilter joins the shapes together. These quilts are called patchwork quilts.
