In the quilting group, we learned that 7 percent
of the homes in the U.S. use quilts, or somebody quilts, or both.
We also learned about different designs, like the log cabin. It's called
the log cabin because it has a ring on the outside and then another ring
and so on until it gets to the middle, and that ring represents the chimney.
Another design is the Irish chain. It's made up of squares that go diagonal
and crisscross all over. And a double Irish chain is where there's a different
color along the outside. But then when they crisscross, the outside color
doesn't overlap the chain. --MacKenzie
Some of the quilters learned how to make quilts when
they were really young. Some learned from their grandmas. --Jenny
The tools they use can be dangerous. There are very
sharp pizza rollers to cut the fabric with. You have to remember to put
the blade back. --Emily
