    Today I got this wonderful book from a dear friend. It has such a nice story and each page is beautifully illustrated. The inside cover has a huge picture puzzle, with 250 quilt patterns hidden in it. My friend is an elementary school librarian and it's one of her favorite read-alouds to the children. I can't wait to share it with my grandchildren. Has anyone else read it?

    I don't own it, but have read it to children in the school library as well. The illustrations are gorgeous and the story is sweet.

    It's sold at my LQS and the author made a visit last year, I think.

    I have had that book for about 5 yrs and have read it twice. I also have lent it out to various Residents at the Nursing Home I work at. It is a lovely book with fantastic illustrations. It is too bad there aren't more books geared towards our passion like that one. Enjoy!

    I also have this book, in fact someone gave me another for a gift. Then someone gave me the pattern book as well! This is a charming story and illustrations are wonderful!

    When my kids were small, I read that story to them many times. I'm sure I still have it... somewhere...
