    Those are really nice. I never would of thought to use those panels for books and put them in a quilt. You just gave this newbie another project to do. Thanks for posting your quilts.

    Really nice quilts, the kids will love them. Like the idea of using the pages of the story book as blocks - will try that for next baby or kid quilts. May in Jersey

    So, very timely!
    A couple of months ago, I bought story book panels (well, I have a LOT of them ) with the intention of making a quilt such as you just showed, however, I wasn't quite sure how to go about it.
    Thank you for sharing. Not only did you do a great job and provide inspiration, but you showed me how to go about doing what I had in the back of my mind to do.
    Thank you!

    Oh, they are so sweet. The recipients are going to be overjoyed. Great job.
    Hope you're getting $$$ for all that work.

    How cute and what a cute idea. You just gave me another idea. I have seen it before, but you use computer fabric and put favorite pictures on there and then put those into a quilt. Maybe I will do that with some pictures that I have in my computer.

    Wow I too never thought of making quilts out of them. I think I have a story book fabric some where in my stash.

    They are adorable. I bought the panels for making a story book also and also made a quilt from them. Had a great-great nephew (the first with a double great !!!) and gave it to him.
