I asked her if she would like to learn how to make something like this and she said yes!
So I got her to play the game (outside of class of course) and take a few screen dumps to work out a design. We worked out how much fabric she would need and then I sent her off to get fabric during the "student non attendance period" (ie. school holidays).
And today at lunchtime we have our first "workshop" at lunchtime with my sewing machine, iron and rotary cutter. Our aim is to make a cushion as a trial, providing I am not too busy, every Wednesday Lunchtime might be the goer for our Patchwork Posse ... cheesy but appropriate if you know the student.
I am going to use the "block" method. Nine squares equals a block and see how it goes. Any advice on teaching patchwork?
PS... and talking about Tetris, check out this low-tech version ... can someone in the UK buy it for me and send it to me?
