Default Quilts and books can go together!

I have made two identical quilts for Xmas for our granddaughters. One lives in Canada and the other in the U. S. I started with a panel in the centre and used other parts of that panel for one of the bottom borders. As a retired teacher, I always loved books written by Eric Carle and want the girls to enjoy them too. I was able to find pretty good fabrics for the grass border and ladybug spot fabrics. Of course, the matching Eric Carle books will be given with the quilts. Such fun!!!!!!!!!! The quilts are cuddle size - 46" x 52" so I'm hoping they will enjoy cuddling up and reading! Thanks for looking!
