Subject: Quilts, stained glass windows, art in general

I teach 8th grade math and Algebra and would like some suggestions on how to
do a unit on quilting in my math class. We recently finished our standardized
testing for the year and there are only 14 days of school left. I wanted to 
use quilting, making stained glass windows (faux ones..not using real glass), 
something along these lines to teach shapes, symmetry, rotation, translation, 
and reflection.
I need some guidance. All of the lessons I've seen posted are done in the
elementary classrooms and involve little to no math. I want to make this 
meaningful for my students and I just need some suggestions. HELP.
