ab: Summary: Following an ATM working weekend funded by the Clothworkers Guild,
the authors invited three neighbouring village primary schools to make
a quilt as a collaborative venture. Using some ready-made quilts,
resource books and boxes of ATM tiles (squares, hexagons, octagons,
dodecagons) and a separate box containing plastic squares, triangles,
two sorts of rhombus, trapeziums and hexagons plus rulers, glue,
pencils, six-inch gummed squares and some printed six inch squares on a
variety of A4 brightly-coloured paper, the children were asked to
produce a quilt of their own. In this article, the authors describe in
detail their quilting activities. (ERIC)
