Cook's fourth grade social studies classes are very much in the "Spirit of '76." The 60 fourth-graders at Malakoff Elementary School recently finished a "Bicen- tennial Quilt" containing numerous patriotic symbols and slogans. Students worked on the individual blocks and then sent the quilt out to have it stuffed and quilted Malakoff's Citizens State Bank President Steve Sut- ton found out about the patriotic quilt, and provided a generous donation to the fourth-grader's activity fund in exchange for the quilt which is now on display in the bank's lobby. Mrs. Cook said at least a part of the money would be used to obtain a replica of the "Malakoff Man" which is now on display at Texas University. Mrs. Cook says she doesn't know exactly how to go about getting a "copy" of the historic Malakoff Man, but she said, "I'll just write to the president of UT and go from there." Four blocks of the historic quilt were displayed at the recent open house during Texas Education Week. A couple of the young- sters, not content with just piecing a quilt, decided to make a "mini-quilt" con- taining four blocks, and carry it all the way through the quilting process. John Tanner and Ty King are storting some sore thumbs from poking needles through cloth and cotton, but they're mighty proud of the mini-quilt which will be hung in the elementary school as a decorative wall- hanging commemorating the Bicentennial. Mrs. Cook said that the studet.wsnau x, Legend has it tPat if some- unit ",,btGm one in your rarely can make Country," including infer- his first and fourth fingers mati0n about famous people, touch over the back of his hand, he is a good cook! places and events in Ameri- can history.

Paid for by Ira Billings] Each fourth-grader was assigned to choose and draw three things that symbolized America to them. There were numerous duplication, but in the end, there were about thirty ideas developed in drawing... From these pat- terns were developed for the quilt pieces, she said. "Some of our materials were a little hard to find, since cotton batting is not used so much any more. Mothers and grandmothers were asked to search through scrap boxes for yester-year's cotton ma- terials to help make the quilt as authentic as possible," she said. "Before the boys and girls worked on quilt blocks they were required to 'get the feel of the needle' by appliqueing a mushroom on a six-inch square of cotton material which was made into a pin cushion to give to their mothers. "A few fell by the wayside and didn't sew too well, but most persevered to the ex- tent that they did the pincushions over three or four times," she recalled. Mrs. Cook was a perfection- ist, telling the children the quilt must be done right if they expected someone to want it. After the blocks were completed by the students, Mrs. Cook sewed them to- gether with red strips. Finding someone to quilt the blocks was another mat- ter. Nearly a lost art in most areas of the country, Mrs. Cook persevered until she located Mrs. Vesta Moseley at Eustace to do the hard part. The quilt-piecing project was such a success, the students decided to do a second one, which will be one of the prizes given away during the PTO carnival this year. In addition to quilting, the students in Mrs. Cook's fourth-grade classes made lye soap. Each student took a bar home. Before the end of the year, they'll also churn butter, Mrs. Cook said.
