FREE E-Book Download – ‘Quilting Unit Study for Homeschoolers’ By Maria Peagler

January 24, 2010 Leave a comment

Ebook Description:

Award-winning author, quilt designer, instructor, and homeschooling parent Maria Peagler offers a guide to teaching your own children through the art of quilting.

Incorporate hands-on quilting projects for girls and boys alike, to learn and apply art, mathematics, history, economics, and many other subjects.

Meant to accompany the quilting book, Color Mastery, but can stand alone.

Thought this might be handy for parents with kids (even those not homeschooled) who might be interested in arts and crafts (like quilting).

At any rate, it’s free for download at Smashwords and available in several convenient ebook formats (mobi, epub, pdf, rtf, lrf, pdb and html).

So click here to download if you are interested!
