Connie Vandermay/FOCUS Quilting students sit on the window ledge in the senior hallway at Perham High School during their quilt show. Students were able to capture some of their quilt-making experiences on film this year, to be used as tutorials by future classes.

Even with the recent iPad immersion, Perham High School's quilting class offers the same hands-on experience students expect.

Throughout the 12-week course, students choose a pattern, pick out material and learn the traditional steps of cutting, piecing and quilting as they each make their own quilt.


Thanks to video recording abilities on the student's new iPads, the 21st century quilting process has an additional step - recording the experience.
