    I call this one Country Quilt. Fun (easy!).

    Funny background--first I tossed some borders around four panels and left them. Weeks later I thought about a wall hanging. Nah. Made two more for a stoller quilt. Nah. Made three more for a baby quilt. Nah. How about 12 for a crib quilt? Nope. At last--how about a lap quilt for me? Yup! I then decided the green I was using was too light for the gold sashing...fixed that. Then I wanted the floral for the outer border. All gone. How about the green? Gone, too. Sigh. I dug around in stash and found another green--close enough. Decided on cornerstones with another fabric from the Farmville series...so it matches--kind of. Finished this at 10 AM. This will be sent to feline for her magical touch.

    I'm off this week and have a lot of quilting to do. Need to bind the ones feline quilted for me and make three Talk-Abouts for the grandbaby on its way!

    Very nice. I like the swirly fabric. What is a talk about quilt?
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Those are Moda Marble Swirls--my favorite fabrics for Talk-About Books. I'll attach some photos... I've sold over 20 now! Note: photos are of random pages.

    What a happy quilt! And I really like your books. Where do you get the pattern and where did you find the fabric for the covers?

    I created the pattern, but the "peek-a-boo" blocks aren't my idea. They are from a quilt called 'Surprise!" I made the covers--the title is what I called my Talk-About-Quilts--but books are way more fun to make!

    These are so very charming the way you have done them, I love your green and am mad about Moda. The little panels are adorable, who makes them? Thank you for your great pictures.

    I love the panels too! They are from a collection called Farmville.

    Such a darling quilt. It's nice when things just come together.

    Oh, your books are adorable. Just right for little hands.
