Quilt by April Oaks
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown is a children's story about a young child who does not want to go to sleep. In the story, the child finds multiple things that he can tell goodnight. He sees a room that is full of fun things to tell goodnight. The child starts telling everything goodnight one by one.
He starts with the cow jumping over the moon. He tells animals goodnight and even objects like balloons and chairs. He tells the clock goodnight and even his socks. He even tells the old lady telling him to hush goodnight. I picked this book because it was my favorite book to read to my children when they were younger. I think it will have plenty of things to make my shapes and it will make a good quilt for someone.
I have to admit; at first I was not excited about doing the quilt at all. I am not able to sew and thought it would be a disaster. As I got into the preparation for the quilt, I enjoyed it a lot. I and Mary Jo worked very hard over spring break to get it finished. I was also excited to be able to turn it in to get it sewed by you or your mother. It ended up being more fun than I originally thought and I really liked my quilt when I was finished.
One thing that made me enjoy what I was doing the most was the fact that I was doing it for babies that are less fortunate than others. This made the project worth doing. I felt like I was contributing to a family that needed my help. I also felt like the baby would be warm and have something that was made by many people working toward the same goal. My quilt did not end up being the nicest, but I know that I did my best. I hope the family that receives it likes it as much as I did.
