Alexander and the
Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
Book by Judith Viorst
Quilt by Katelin Bohannon
The book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst can be found in most public libraries.
I think that this is a great way to get children to enjoy reading. I hope this quilt will give a child the love of reading I had when I was younger. This book was one of my favorites when I was younger and I would read it over and over again. I even remember watching the little movie that was made of it. I hope that this quilt will inspire someone else to pick up the book and give it a try. I also think this is a great way to put geometry and measurements into use.
By doing this quilt I realized I can do more than I give myself credit for. I learned to sew in a class in high school, but before I was motive to finish this quilt myself I would have never thought I could do it. I figured what skills I once had would have left me since that was so long ago that I learned them and not practiced them. I was surprised to find how easily it came back to me.
