    Yep, I'm embarrased to ask because I discarded the scraps AND I mixed up the order of the panels. OK, now that I've got that out of the way.....

    I purchased a children's soft book panel and am making blocks with the pages. I've cut off the page numbers and my pile is now out of order. I had bought the last panel in the LQS. I've looked online and found the panel, but the print is so small I can't see the page numbers. On the panel, the pages are not in order because of the way they are sewed together., yatayatayata, Anyway, can anyone help? These are the lines: I know the first 3 pages are correct and the last 3 pages are correct.

    Noah's Friends
    One giraffe....
    and another makes two.
    A pair of mice
    and hippos of blue...
    and lions with smiles.
    Monkeys are friends
    with green crocodiles.
    Two striped zebras
    Two jolly elephants come along.
    Noah's friends all belong.
    This book belongs to__________.

    Does this make sense to you? What has confused me is that the "two" in the elephant line is also capitalized. If this makes sense, I'll stitich it that way. Thanks in advance for your input. Gail

    can you send a link to where you found it? I may be able to blow it up and help you figure it out. I made a quilt with a book panel and may still have the directions, I would think the pages would be numbered the same.

    I don't know if this is it or not, but it seems to flow rhythmically.

    That's what I thought, too, Lori. Here's the panel layout, Donna. Hope you can figure it out from that. http://www.hancockfabrics.com/Noah-s...VVviewprod.htm

    I really do appreciate all of this help. Lori, that sounds like it could be right. Then Upnorth yours sounds good too. If you were able to put the pages together, that is probably what it is. And ghostrider, thanks for the link. More later.

    Thanks JudeWill. That sounds good too. I'M SO CONFUSED. :lol:

    I'll be going to the LQS tomorrow. Hope she still has one hanging in the shop. I'll let you all know as soon as I find out. Thanks again for the responses. You're all the BEST.
