My daughter's school was the sole school selected in the state to create a 5 X 5 inch patriotic square for a quilt of the US. She was asked to head up this project and it's due this week. From childhood, I've seen quilts being made by older ladies but I never actually took part in the making of one. So, as I surfed the web for information on quiltmaking, I stumbled upon this site and it has truly excited me. I'm paniked as well because I know we have our work cut out for us this week as we embark upon making that square without any resources. All comments and ideas are welcomed!
