Not really quilting but new use for scraps & quilting magazines
My son's girlfriend teaches high school math and she is having her students create a quilt square - approx 7" using math terms - to help understand geometry. She came over today to borrow some old quilt magazines to help them visualize the concepts she is teaching.
She had a ball going through the magazines looking at all the quilts in visualizing in math terms!
Students will each then have to design & execute a square and explain each piece in math terms. (way beyond my brain - that's why I taught social studies & language arts!) When they are finished, the classes (3) will put their squares together into quilts and have a competition to see which of the 3 quilts is best. I gave her a sack of scraps to give the students that can't afford to go out & buy their own fabric.
She is going to have them either sew (with parent's help) or fuse with wonderunder to a base block. I will probably help with the final assembly into the finished quilt.
Who knows, maybe this will help inspire a new generation of quilters??
