Activity: Designing a Quilt

One of the most common items that starts with the letter Q is quilted fabric, whether it be a quilted jacket, quilted dress, or a hand-made quilt for bedding.

For this activity, you’ll answer: if you were to design a quilted blanket, what would it look like?

  • Step 1: Gather your supplies. You’ll need a sheet of paper, a ruler, and some colored pencils, crayons, or markers.
  • Step 2: Draw a large square or rectangle on the piece of paper. This will be the outline of your quilt design!
  • Step 3: Draw lines inside your rectangle or square to create a grid. Use your ruler to draw straight vertical and horizontal lines to create new squares inside of the rectangle or square you drew in step two. These will be the squares of your quilt!
  • Step 4: Fill your squares! You can draw pictures, use different colors, fill them in with shapes (like stars or hearts)… the design is up to you! Your quilt should reflect what you like, so use your favorite colors, animals, flowers, or characters for inspiration.
