In MOOSHKA, A QUILT STORY, Julie writes and illustrates to create a nice look at capturing memories by rendering them into a family heirloom. Karla's unusual quilt, which she calls her Mooska, tells her stories as found in its colors and patterns (as a result of her grandmother telling these stories while creating the quilt). Mooshka by Julie Paschkis (Whom also illustrated) is a wonderful, sweet story. Featuring the titular blanket as generational soothsayer, Mooshka takes the reader on a multigenerational journey.

Karla has a quilt that can talk – it tells her the stories of her family. With elegant simplicity and generously colored and patterned pages, this picture book shows how a family quilt can connect children to both the past and the present. This is the true story of a young girl who observes nature closely and dares to challenge the received wisdom about metamorphosis.

Karla loves her quilt, which she calls Mooshka. Mooshka comforts her on cold and scary nights and, at least according to Karla, can talk. Whether Mooshka is actually magical is left open to interpretation. Indeed, young listeners may be as disconcerted as Karla at the appearance of a baby sister, but careful examination of an earlier picture reveals a hint of things to come. After initial, if mild, hostility, Karla finds it in her heart to comfort little Hannah by sharing both Mooshka and the story of her own contribution.

Karla loves Mooshka, a quilt composed of scraps of fabric from many members of Karla s family.

Mooshka, A Quilt Story By Julie Paschkis ISBN: 9781561456208 I was first attracted to this book because of the word Quilt. The cover is very pretty and I know it can be done by quilting various fabrics together to tell a story. It protected her from scary things. Also the quilt would talk to her: sweet dreams, it said, every night. This quilt, made by her grandmother stitched it, told her of what the squares meant with a story. Precious stories she could rest her head on and listen to the quilt tell her what the square was about. One day a new crib was.

A quality made book, but I personally did not get that much out of the story. I gave the book as a gift to my great niece with one of the Mooshka dolls. I didn't have time before gifting it; but as I read the book, I realized that a handmade quilt would have been a perfect gift to accompany the book. My grandmothers both handmade quilts in their homes from scrap material that came from discarded clothing or clothing that had been damaged in some way beyond repair, such as aprons, my granddad's work shirts, etc. It was also a way they used up scrap pieces left over from handmade clothing and pillows. They knew a thing or two about recycling, re-purposing, and up-cycling. They lived through the Great Depression and believed in the "no waste" principle and applied it daily.

I bought this book for my 7 year old for Christmas because it is a book that you read and then you can purchase the quilt panel to make the mini quilt and cat. The story is very cute. I will say the story was much too simple for my 7 year old, but the quilt will not be. Julie is a fabulous illustrator/designer.

I do wish that the story could have been a little bit more detailed for a 7 year old. Most would probably buy this book for a younger child and then make the quilt panel themselves. Or, some would opt to skip the quilt panel all together of course. If you are interested in the quilting part, be warned that it may be difficult to find now. I did have to shop around a bit and pay a bit more since it is now out of print. Amazon does not currently carry the quilt panel.

Overall, this is a great little book with fabulous illustrations for a small child still reading picture books.

This is a sweet book that tells the story of a quilt, a grandma, and a new baby. The little girl hears the quilt talking to her. She also remembers/hears the stories of each of the fabrics in the quilt. But then the quilt goes silent...... The resolution is heartwarming. This is a book that any quilter would love to read to her children or grandchildren.

I bought my infant Granddaughter a Mooshka doll, so when I saw this book, I knew I had to get it for her to give with the doll for Christmas. It's beautiful....and I know she will love it...one day!
Thank you!
