The theme of the quilt is "Olivia the Piglet," after a children's book the class has enjoyed this year. "She's kind of our mascot," Rugani said. Each student drew or painted a square to add to the professional drawings of the cartoon pig, taken from the book illustrated by Ian Falconer, cover illustrator for the New Yorker magazine.
"It really unified the kids," Rugani said.
