What makes a pattern? How do we combine patterns to create quilts?
Find quilts, or books with pictures of quilts, made with square patches.
Invite children to describe their patterns. Talk about principles of visual organization such as rhythm, repetition, unity, and balance.
Look at quilt designs. What patterns are used? What shapes do you see? How are square patches put together to make a harmonious design?
To make your own quilt patterns, print Crayola® MiniStampers on paper.
Cut several quilt squares using Crayola® Scissors.
On construction paper, arrange the quilt squares in an appealing design. Use Crayola® Glue Sticks to attach them.
