stART: Quilt Books

We have been reading a lot of quilt-related books this week. M has loved them all, so of course we had to do a quilt project this week. I thought about having her sew, but I don't think she is ready for that yet, so I cut the letter Q out of paper, and gave M squares of many different patterned papers to glue on. She loved this and actually made two quilted q's.


Our stories read include:
  • The Log Cabin Quilt by Ellen Howard
  • Reuben and the Quilt by P. Buckley Moss
  • The Keeping Quilt by Patricia Polacco
  • Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt by Deborah Hopkinson
  • Quilt Alphabet by Lesa Cline-Ransome
  • Quilt Counting by Lesa Cline-Ransome
  • A Name on the Quilt by Jeannine Atkins
  • Shota and the Star Quilt by Christine Fowler
  • A Quilt for Baby by Kim Lewis
I am linking this post to stART (story + art = a great start) over at A Mommy's Adventures and Kid's Get Craft over at Red Ted's Art.
