Nonna's Quilt

Here is the fabric we chose to make Nonna's quilt. Anna and I will be starting this project together on the weekend. Today we got all the squares cut out. And now we need to decide how to arrange them all. That I think is the fun part. We are going to read a book together called The Quilt Block History of Pioneer Days before we decide how we want to design it.I think this is a great companion to our American History study that we are doing in Weaver right now.

I learned how to quilt when we lived in Alaska. The manager of our apartment at the time was an amazing quilter her name was Wilma. She kept me busy while I was pregant with Liam and taught me how to quilt. It has been a long time since I made a quilt so I am hoping it will all come back to me.
