    Red face My Talk-About Book

    Here's the story (I always have one, you know): When I saw this block http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t182319.html I immediately pictured the blocks in a book. I drew out ideas, and had a feeling it'd be a popular project. The concept is for it to be an educational book--for adults to talk about what's on the pages to an infant in order to promote vocabulary development (yes, I'm a teacher lol). Once older, the children can talk about what they see, and make up stories about the pictures--developing imagination. I created a Talk-About Quilt years ago with the same concept.
