Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

The Patchwork Quilt

Thursday night my husband brought me a new book — well new to me.  The Patchwork Quilt by Valerie Flournoy with pictures by Jerry Pinkney.    Published in 1985 by Dial books for Young Readers, the summary says:

Using scraps cut from the family’s old clothing, Tanya helps her grandmother make a beautiful quilt that tells the story of her family’s life.

The Patchwork Quilt is the 1986 Coretta Scott King Award Illustrator Award Winner.

I really enjoyed the book.
