Friendship Quilt 8th graders celebrate their years together by sewing friendship quilts, which is a beloved annual tradition that began in 2000. Each student sews 36 identical quilt squares with three pieces of fabric that represent them in some unique way. Then they trade with each classmate, resulting is a 36-square friendship quilt. Over the course of the six-week project, students work Wednesdays after school and on Saturdays to measure, cut, iron, prepare, and sew their quilts. Parents love to come help out as well. Each quilt is displayed at the Baccalaureate Mass luncheon in June and is the pride and joy of each graduate, reminding them of their treasured friendships and memories from their St. Lucy School years.
