Design, snip, clip . . .

Welcome to the quilting bee!

With the help of popular author/illustrator Gail Gibbons, you'll learn how quilts are made and discover their fascinating history as well as lots of fun facts.

Back in colonial times, quilting bees were important social functions, combining both work and pleasure. They still exist today and attract thousands of snippers, clippers, and stitchers from all walks of life.

Some traditional quilt patterns have funny names: Trip Around the World, Bear's Paw, Crazy Quilt. Today's quilt makers also use their imaginations to create new designs that are works of art.

Here's the book to get you started in the wonderful world of quilts. Maybe you'll want to make one of your own!

About the Author:

Gail Gibbons, author of more than one hundred books, is the winner of the Washington Post/Children’s Book Guild Award for her overall contribution to children’s nonfiction literature. Called a “master of picture book nonfiction” by ALA Booklist, Ms. Gibbons has a special talent for making complex subjects understandable and entertaining for young readers.

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 2. Perhaps inspired by picture books like Patricia Polacco's beloved The Keeping Quilt (1998), many teachers plan units on quilts to take advantage of their multiple curriculum connections. As usual, Gibbons proves herself in sync with such classroom trends with her newest nonfiction offering, which follows a contemporary "quilting circle," consisting of adults and two child helpers, from planning a new quilt to displaying it at the county fair. Historical background on quilting and on traditional American patterns, such as Road to California and Little Red Schoolhouse, enriches the simple text. Gibbons' bright watercolors serve the bold, geometric patterns well; however, it's a shame that most of the pattern blocks (a pattern's smallest repeating unit) are never depicted within a completed quilt, preventing readers from marveling at the designs in their full, kaleidoscopic splendor. A suggestion for a class project, involving sending favorite authors and illustrators cloth squares to be decorated and returned, will likely be greeted by teachers with enthusiasm. (Whether the authors and illustrators will oblige seems less certain.) Jennifer Mattson
