We read ‘The Quilt Story’ by Tomie de Paola. In it, a little girl’s mummy makes her a quilt. She loves the quilt and takes it everywhere with her. She has picnics on it…..
and sleeps with it on her bed.
She is sad when her family moves to a new house a long way away; everything smells new and unfamiliar. Except the quilt. When she wraps herself up in it it makes her feel safe and warm - and peaceful.
We decided it might be rather nice to make ourselves a peaceful quilt.
We each designed a pattern on a square of paper. We used oil pastels.
Then we painted the square with watercolour paints.
Finally, we shuffled them around…..
until we were happy with the layout.
What do you think?
Our Peaceful Quilt.
