Here is part 4 in Jennie’s story of the quilt!
In Part 3, we made a giant sketch for the quilt based on what the children felt were important parts of the song and the book, “This Land is Your Land.” Woody’s guitar, the church from the ‘sad page’, landmarks in America, and even Gloria were most important to children. Next, Donna the quilter arrived with fabrics. I mean a truckload of beautiful, interesting fabrics, not the kind you or I would find at a regular fabric store. Children had a heyday with the fabrics before getting down to serious selecting.
Then, Donna arrived with the face of the quilt, sewn just like the sketch, with the fabrics children had selected. The last part, selecting fabric for the border and lettering, seemed the hardest for the children. I wonder if Woody felt the same way when he selected the words to his song. It was a wonderful day.
