    I call it a Talk-About-Quilt. I designed it years ago for educational purposes. A brochure was created to give to parents to explain how it teaches what it teaches. It's often sold with my book called "Thoughts on Being a Mommy."

    Several years ago I prepared enough squares to make about 20 of them--and these four are the last to use up those pieces. Now I've reworked it--color wise--and will be making more of the new edition this year. The backs are so much fun--I use wonderfully entertaining bear and cats and kids stuff. Sometimes flannel is used.

    A teacher at school bought one for her grandchild, and since another is on the way, she wanted a second one. I tried to talk her into one of those baby Triple Irish Chains, but she wants a Talk-About. :-D I've sold about 12 of them.

    I realize I can't stop someone from copying this design and idea, but I won't be giving out directions. You understand. :wink:

    That is really a beautiful quilt and I am sure that the brightness of the quilt is a pleasure to any child. I do have to ask about your book and your name, Borglum...any relation to the family that carved the monument? Where can I find your book? Joanie

    Isn't he the Mt. Rushmore carver guy? You should claim genes from him because of his talent!
