Patterns and shapes in quilts

This new school program looks at the economics and trade of quilts by using geography, math, and art. Students will explore quilts, analyze maps, discover early transportation, and role play a period fabric purchase scenario.

Any teacher or homeschool group (of ten or more students) can register for a free school program. To sign-up for Patterns and Shapes, email museum@dar.org or phone 202.879.3240.
