Photo Quilt Square

Build creative thinking and organization skills with a beautiful quilting project. Young photographers use a digital camera and computer to create photo transfers, which they will use to create a photo quilt square. They sew or embroider their squares and use them to create an imaginative and expressive textile piece.
