Thanksgiving Paper Quilt

This Thanksgiving Paper Quilt demonstrates some of the things we have to be thankful for on Thanksgiving. Everybody has something special to be thankful for.  Let each child print their name and their own reason to be thankful and piece them all together to make their own beautiful Thanksgiving Paper Quilt.


Although fine quilting was a sign of affluence the sewing together of layers for warmth was done by the poor as well. If one couldn’t afford carded wool or cotton to sew between the layers old blankets, clothing or even feathers, straw or leaves could be used instead. In English orphanages and poorhouses one form of crude bed covering was made by sewing paper into cotton bags. Source: All About Quilts – Quilt History
