Lesson summary

Patchwork quilts are often used to tell stories. For example, sometimes fabric has come from a piece of treasured clothing, and sometimes squares are added with a special message from a friend or family member. Even though each patch is different, they come together to make a quilt of warmth and protection. In this task, you will create a drawing of a patchwork quilt of dignity, telling the story of how everyone has the right to be treated with dignity, regardless of the choices they have made.
