The patchwork quilt by valerie flournoy online dating
Grandmother gets well and lets Tanya keep the quilt.
Tanya treasures the quilt and the time spent working on it with her family.
I did not really get any type of lesson or idea from this story.
Although, the illustrations were beautiful and very detailed. Overall, the story was sweet and entertaining, but it is not one of my favorites.
Tanya's grandmother had begun to make a patchwork quilt using scraps from old shirts, Halloween costumes, and any other materials that had meaning to them.
Finally, when Grandma is able to begin working on the quilt again, she finishes it by stitching on the last square, which reads, "For Tanya From your Mama and Grandma."Twenty years ago Valerie Flournoy and Jerry Pinkney created a warmhearted intergenerational story that became an award-winning perennial.
