Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eileen Hanning
Drawing on the tradition of patchwork quilting, paper patchwork uses paper instead of fabric to create patterns. This craft book encourages kids to develop their creativity and math skills and to recycle materials, all through paper patchwork. Kids can use the templates and stencils provided to cut paper shapes to arrange in patterns. The book suggests ideas for using patchwork patterns to decorate household items. Bold photographs show how wrapping paper, old maps, magazines and stamps can bring new life to boxes, books and folders, frames, and even furniture. Children learning about shapes, fractions, or geometry will enjoy working with the squares, rectangles, triangles, hexagons, and diamonds. While the book does provide some step-by-step instructions (with illustrations), it is much more a book of ideas that will encourage kids to create their own patchwork patterns. 1998 (orig.
