Many cultures design their own quilts.

Quilt Challenge - Using dot paper design your own bedspread.


1. Lightly draw a horizontal and vertical line in the middle of the page.

2. See if you can create a beautiful pattern that is symmetrical by using flips, slides and turns.

Hint - Do the same shapes 4 times in each rectangle. But be careful. It is a little trickier than you might think.

NB If you do this activity on square paper you can create a design with 2 lines of symmetry and rotational symmetry of order 4.
