Crafting a math-work quilt: Magee Elementary students help hospitalized kids


MageeWisconsin - Scraps of material, thread and batting are more than the ingredients for a quilt - at Magee Elementary on Wednesday they were the components of a math lesson and more.

"If your grandma's quilting, then you know your grandma's a genius," said Annie Brantzeg, a quilter and grandmother herself.

. . .

Students had the opportunity to work on two quilts - hand-tying one and machine-sewing another. The quilts, Brantzeg said, were on their way to help other children.

Brantzeg is a member of the Quilt Guild, an organization that makes ABC quilts for children in the hospital. Each quilt is signed by the quilt maker "with love and comfort to you."
