This is what it looks like It was really fun. My group was the 8th grade girls. We worked really hard almost every class period. We did this because our school is having a gala, so we made a barn quilt to put in it. We call it the 2016 4 by 4. If you look at it, the blue has 4 paths that go to the middle and then the yellow has the same thing. In the middle there is a big hole in the middle so it looks like it leads to it. It was so fun to paint and design all of it. I didn’t have a clue how our teacher was going to let us pull it off, but we did it and it looks really good. It was hard to choose colors. We wanted blue and green and then we didn’t have those colors so we changed it to blue and yellow. I think it looks good! Now you try it.
