Alphabet Quilt


Students make a quilt with 26 squares for each letter of the alphabet. This activity is designed as a family project.


felt, cut 9″ x 9″ for each student
large piece of felt
fabric glue

Lesson Plan:

  • Allow each child to select a letter of the alphabet.
  • Provide students with a piece of 9″ by 9″ piece of felt and a variety of felt and fabric remnants.
  • Have students create a quilt square that displays their chosen letter’s shape. (They can complete these at home, if desired.) Students cut out or draw pictures of words that begin with the sound. For example, if the student selects the letter “K” they can cut out a kite from fabric squares, draw a picture of a Koala and/or glue on an key.
  • When all quilt squares are returned, you can purchase a large piece of felt and use fabric glue to adhere the felt pieces. It will make a beautiful quilt that students will admire all year long.
