Symmetry in a Bee (quilting bee)

This past week we delved into symmetry and visual representations of symmetrical examples.  In the back of my mind I was thinking quilts and the amazing skills our early forebears developed in designing them.  A quilt is functional as well as beautiful.  It may be complicated and encompass geometry as well as symmetry, or not.

Today I found a piece about quilts and symmetry that includes some simple activities ... or, you can gather a group of folks and start a quilting bee!

Please let us know what you did, or what you think after perusing this website.  Thanks.
