I don't think it was on this thread ... if so, then it'd be on the previous pages, and you would just need to go back thru them all to find it.

I'm not sure what you are looking for ... if it's how to assemble the blocks into a quilt ... cut the blocks apart and add sashings and cornerstones as you would a quilt that is made of blocks. They really can make nice quilts and I have a couple that I want to do ..... sometime! :)
Not sure if this helps you any?
I have done that. I simply cut the book into individual pages, put them in order, sashed and bordered. On one, I put a spacer block at the beginning and end to make it come out even. Very quick, worked well.
I also took 2 children's books I wrote for my firstborn, redid them in applique. The words for one were printed onto the background fabric and had it as a Christmas present for my second son's first son. I would share a photo but I can't find it today. I got a blue ribbon for it. At our quilt show, I noticed several parents and grandparents reading the story to their young ones.
Looking for something else and found two of my many
Ok, here's one from this year. When it gets into a quilt, the gold pan will have gold French knots.
I think I may make a California Boy quilt some day. I meant to put it into a swap quilt of boys from around the country, but I could not find mine when the other ones were sent to me.
QuiltE, any updates on your little bo peep idea? I'd love to see it! I'm currently working on an applique sheep quilt of my own design as well, maybe it qualifies for this group too?
FuzzyKitty ... thanks for asking but sadly, no stitches have been sewn on Peep! Of course, yours should be here on this thread ... come on over and join us and we'd all love to share in your progress. Besides, Peep and her Sheep would like the company! :)

Have been looking for black corduroy or a washable velveteen for the sheep heads/legs and never expected it to be so hard to find.
Also, keep debating whether to use regular cotton for the sheep? or minkee? I don't think I'll do freestyle sheep like you. My plans have always been to piecework them ... though seeing yours might inspire me to change my thoughts on this.
So the display is the same in my sewing room and I enjoy the view for inspiration as I walk by. Sadly, I have been working out of town a lot and leaving again this tomorrow for another week. I hope life slows down and I can get some sewing done soon.
So Welcome FuzzyKitty!! Hope to see yours coming more to life when I am back to home base again!
QM - You seem to do a lot of character quilts. Well done. This thread is for new projects so I hope you will design something new and sew along with us.
Fuzzykittenbutt - more sheep would be wonderful. Might provide incentive for QuiltE to stay at home for an hour or two at a time and work on Miss Peep. :)
Sorry huntersgramie - can't help you.
W4Me ... hahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!
buttttttttt all this away, pays for the play time supplies!!! :)
And besides ... when Peep loses her Sheep, we'd be able to find off playing with FuzzyKitty's sheep!!!!!!!! :)
:-) I don't know what happened, I clicked the button to receive updates on this thread, but didn't get any. Luckily I got suspicious and dropped by again, and lookie there, very warm welcome messages for me. :-) Thank you QuiltE and works4me!
OK, I promise to move my sheep over to here. As soon as I'm finished with my two sheep's owl friend, I'll post an update and some progress pictures. For now, here are close ups of my two sheep:
I forgot to order orange thread and it's an all organic cotton baby quilt, so I had to special order it, which means I also have to wait...don't like waiting, lol...and my friend, whom the quilt is for, is now very very pregnant...not sure if the quilt will be finished by her delivery date *biting nails*
