Quilts Today
Today, quilts are very popular. So popular that kids are making them in school. In Starkville, Mississippi, a fourth grade class made this quilt of images of their state. "We used quilt designs in math," said their teacher, Annette Smith.

What else do you think might inspire people to make a quilt?
