The Thanksgiving craft-quilting project is a great way to express individuality. The individual pieces allow every person to express their individuality.
When the individual pieces are put together, they create a masterpiece that celebrates the spirit of the season. Expressing individual differences while create a sense of community is what this project is all about.
You make little squares of paper; cut 3 inches by three inches. These are the ‘quilt’ squares. Everyone decorates a few of the ‘quilt’ pieces’. When all of the pieces are dry, you hang the quilt pieces together to make one big quilt on the bulletin board.
Take the yarn and cut it into pieces about one to two inches long. Tie the pieces of yarn together, having about two to four loose ends of yarn in a group. These serve as the corners of the quilt (between the pieces of ‘quilt’ (to help the project look more like a real quilt).
What Are You Thankful For
There is a variety of themes to choose from when making the quilt pieces. One fun theme is for everyone to make a quilt piece, dedicated to what they are thankful for. This is the true spirit of the season, and reminds everyone exactly what they have to be thankful for.
