For the next part of the story quilt, we needed to create our patterned pieces to fill up our quilts. Students each received 4 strips of paper, using crayon and watercolors, they created patterned strips that each used 2 colors and 2 shapes. Once the strips were dry, they were cut up into pieces. During one class period, students were allowed to walk around to different tables and trade pieces with friends. At the end of 10 minutes, students made their way back to their desks and began gluing their pattern pieces down. To finish their quilt, the fully colored illustration was affixed to the middle.
