To fetch is to go after something and bring it back. Fetching is not quite the same word, although both come to us from variations of the Old English fetian and faet, for “step” and “foot.”
Fetching used to mean contriving or crafty. It’s not too far-fetched to accept that fetching, in the sense of “taking,” has come to mean alluring, fascinating, attractive.
And with the help Grandma is getting with that quilt, it should be quite fetching.
