I just had to have one of my own! I purchased this beautiful vintage quilt from ebay. Thought it would be so cool for the kids to see a real one. They were so excited when I brought this in to show them! Now my bilingual kids no longer think a quilt is a "rug" and totally understand the concept.
We all sat around it and talked about how and why the crazy quilt was made and who made it. Now this quilt will come home with me because I want to use it as a piece of wall art in our guest room!
