The quilts being donated to the Spiritual Life Center at Cunningham Children's Home in Urbana, Ill, represent much more than the creativity of the students from Monticello Middle School in Illinois. The students picked their own squares, with each quilt representing stories and poems learned in the students' history and language arts classes; their shapes were part of lessons about geometry. Monticello math teacher Pam Householder said the quilts blend nonfiction in literature and social studies and reiterate that "math is everywhere."
