GOLDILOCKS AND HER QUILT


Once upon a time Grandma Mousie made a little quilt. And actually, the center was created using a Little Quilts pattern for the Sunbonnet Sue. This little quilt went to live with Granddaughter Danielle, to hang on her bedroom wall. Years passed and Danielle grew up to the age of 13. Little girl quilts were no longer of interest to her. Recently this little quilt surfaced again while packing up the closet in Danielle's bedroom. Grandma Mousie thought that it would look cute in Goldilocks' bedroom, with her 1930's repro quilt that she just finished for her bed. So she mailed it off to Goldilocks' house.  Above is Goldilocks, pretending to sleep.
Goldilocks likes her new little quilt, and wraps up in it while watching TV, reading a book, or riding in the car! She even took it camping!
"Oh no!" Says Goldilocks! "Don't hang it on the wall, I want to snuggle with it. I love it!" This makes Grandma Mousie very happy! 
Above, the photo shows the little quilt sitting on top of the 1930's repro quilt on Goldilocks' bed.  When asked how she likes her big quilt, she says she likes it, but not as much as the little one! She hardly lets that one out of her sight. Someday Goldilocks will grow up and prefer a bigger quilt. Grandma Mousie will happily make her another one, because Goldilocks knows how to show appreciation for a quilt! No doubt she will live happily ever after!

Awww, this is so sweet. It must make you feel so, well, just wonderful to have a family to create quilts for. And now, for them to be shared in this way. Gosh! I think that's reason enough for being in my book.

After having all those babies that you did, this is well deserved love!

I read this out loud to Goldilocks and she got upset and said "I don't want to send my quilt away when I get bigger and get a new one, I love it and want to keep it!" I told her she can keep it always.

I just love your story! It's funny how children become attached to certain things. I have offered to make my 16 year old a new quilt for her room, many times. She refuses saying ,Why, I love "this one"! Your quilts are beautiful. I have yet to make a 1930's repro quilt. It is on my "someday" list! :0)
