Quilts can be more than warm blankets.

They can be works of art and family heirlooms!

Need an activity to do for home evening? Try making a “heritage quilt” with fabric or paper squares that represent each member of your family!

  • Ask each family member to choose a fabric square (or color a paper square).
  • Sew (or tape) the squares together in a pattern.
  • Feel free to add a border or any embellishments you want.
  • Write down the meaning behind each square so have a record for the future.
  • Display your quilt proudly!

Making a heritage quilt is an artistic way to pass on information about your family to future generations. Give it a try!
