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.

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.
