Here’s an idea for Quilting “Squares of Hope” to help Cope with Terrorism Acts




2, 3, 4, 5  

Title – Squares of Hope
By – Erin Murray
Primary Subject – Art
Secondary Subjects – Art
Grade Level – 2-5 
Objective: To help students cope with the recent tragedies and allow them to feel like they are contributing to the healing process, have them each design a quilt square centering around the themes of hope, patriotism, etc. Once they draw the design out on paper they could then trace their design to a piece of cloth. Using fabric paint they could then color their designs in.

I have another teacher in my building helping me sew the quilt squares together. I will then have the quilts sent to NYC to show our support as a student body.
