    I forgot to mention that the Star brite picture that I appliqued over with "this quilt made with love for Mackensie L........ for her 1st birthday and the date and my name" was used as my label on the back of the quilt. I've been looking on the Net for the backing fabric but have not had any luck as yet. Will post if I find it. I did find the panel on ebay.

    I have three more panels which I am saving for my own grandkids. I just found out Christmas that, hopefully, we will be grandparents in July. I can't wait to finally make baby quilts for my family.

    Sorry but I can't figure out how to make this a direct link.

    Very nice! I saw some Winnie the Pooh storybook panels at Joann's a few weeks ago and was going to do something like this but when they unrolled the panel two of the panels were torn. I went back a week ago and they do not have it in stock anymore.

    nanabirdmo,
    I thought that looked like Mary Engelbreit's work! I absolutely love her stuff and the quilt is adorable. I hope I can find some. I am so envious of calabella for finding it at $1 a panel!!!!!

    nanabirdmo, I don't have a digital camera but I asked Mackenzie's Dad to send me pictures of the quilt which he did in an email. I was able to download them to my computer but I haven't a clue how to post them. I'll see if I can figure it out.

    I've managed to get hold of a length of this fabric so, Nanabirdmo would you mind very much if I copied your quilt for my yet-to-be-born great grandchild? I loved that quilt so much, that I send to the USA for the fabric and its just arrived!!

    nanabirdmo, I found a panel also. I bought some med. blue material with yellow and white stars that I plan to use for the shashing and backing. I have not learned to post a picture. But, I will try.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Hi, love the quilt, and thanks for sharing! I was given a bunch of those panels of soft books to make and wondered about doing quilts instead. So now I know the answer is yes. But I wish I had a panel of the same one you did. :mrgreen: I really like it. Maybe I will check out Mary E. but I do have enough as it is. :D

    Thanks nanabird...now I must look out for something for the backing and sashing! I must stop looking at your baby quilts! I've just seen another one with ducks on!...this child will still be wrapped in baby quilts when its 20 years old I think...Ive seen so many lovely quilts that I want to make for it! I just wish that I'd been into quilting when the older grandkids were little!.......lol!

    Hi all, in case anyone is looking for a panel there are quilt a few at ebay but I found one for bid starts at 3.50 and buy it now 4.50 and only 2.70 shipping. That is a steal. Here is the item number. Just key it in the search box and it will bring it up. 140209642529

    You also can go to fabric and put in Mother Goose and there are more panels and fabric that matches the mother goose. Good luck and have fun.

    I love this quilt. Where do you get fabric books?
