The image above, “Patchwork Quilt,” was created by Romare Bearden in 1970. To see more of his work click on the image above to go to the Romare Bearden Foundation. Romare Bearden used pieces of scrap cloth to create this collage.
Using this work as inspiration, kids created thier quilts with cut pieces of felt and the front sides of old Christmas cards. They glued pieces of thier choosing, onto the backs of the Christmas cards.
