Every spring Mrs. Elliott's Family and Consumer Science (FACS) class learns to make quilts.
Mrs. Elliot said she used to teach the students how to read clothing patterns and make their own clothes but the students didn't always wear the clothes they made. She wanted them to make something they would use, so they started making quilts.
Seven students will be partaking this year and tasked with gathering the fabric and supplies then rewarded with choosing the design, size, and purpose of their quilt. Before the students can start sewing they have to pass a paper sewing test. Some of the different types of quilts they make are rag quilts and tie quilts.
Third and fourth year FACS students, Alex Harmon and McKenzie Olson will be making their third quilt. First-year student Ranee Russell is very excited to make her first quilt.
