Quilts and quilters through the eyes of a 3 year old

One of my granddaughter’s first words was quilt which made me very proud and happy. She can hardly stand to not have a quilt around her and sleeps with five or six on her bed. She has her own table in my sewing room and plays around with fabric. I figured she must know a lot about quilting and that it would be fun to ask her how much she knows each year before she turns a new age. Here you have quilts and quilters through the eyes of a 3 year old.

When I told her that I wanted to ask her questions about quilts she insisted on drawing pictures first. They are included!
