These Crazy Quilts were inspired by Painted Paper's version. If you've been reading you can see I've been a little inspired by crazy quilts. Check out this post and this post. I am always attracted to art with a lot of soul and creativity. This style of quilting allows for a lot of freedom and creativity. My bilingual fifth graders were instantly curious about the big, colorful quilt hanging in the room. Whenever kids are inspired by something I definitely try to pursue it. Painted Papers crazy quilt lesson was a perfect way to practice color mixing, patterning, vocabulary and using rulers. Thanks again Laura! You can see how much fun my fifth graders had painting paper quilts!
|Perfect display for before maternity leave. Totally captures the energy of these fifth graders. |
Sorry I forgot to take a picture of the other side of the case where more are displayed.
