    Talk About Books--a smattering of pages from the newest ones

    I love making these. I created the pattern--after a lot of math and adjusting. The "Peek-a-boo" block is by Karie Patch designs and is used with Karen Dumont's permission. It takes a LOT of different fabrics to create these babies.

    You books are beautiful and you have a pretty GD. What type of markers do you use to print on fabric. When I tried to print on the fabric the ink bleeds and runs. Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful books. Let us know what shows you are doing. Last year I looked for you at Naples but never did find you. Are you making a quilt from the floral blocks or using the blocks individually. I wasn't sure.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I will be at Naples!! But my friend and I are away from the main hub--towards Rt 245 on the left as you head out.

    Thanks! It's fun to have a grandbaby to watch and learn from--on what changes I can make. For infants I like to turn the peek a boo blocks to the back and just "talk about" the full fabric pages. Once she's able to grab and hold the flaps--we'll move to those pages. I Jessie-sit Tuesday again--so after some milk, a burp, a diaper change and some songs, we'll look at one again. Her mom keeps one in the diaper bag, along with other books, for her. I just love toys that build vocabulary and creativity--and help parents and kids to bond!!

    What troubles I had with this in the beginning! I tried several kinds and decided on one. I followed the directions, washed them and they were awesome. Nice and bright! Then I needed more markers--so ordered some. No directions, but I assumed the procedure I'd been using would work. Nope. I'd made 30 title pages--washed them and they ALL ran. What a waste of time, money and fabric!! So--I went back to my 2nd choice--Crayola Fabric Markers--and kept the design simple--just tracing letters I created from a word document. I ironed each for 4 min--and test washed them and all was well. When I made 17 recently--I decided to use the other heat setting option--put them in the dryer for 30 min. I tested one just to be sure it worked fine and no running. Whew. The only reason Crayola markers were a second choice is because the green wasn't a true green to me--a bit blue-ish. I'm, ah, very picky. ;-)

    Wonderful books for babies. Thanks for the info on the markers also. I like the idea of throwing them in the dryer for 30 minutes to heat set!

    Very impressive! I can't imagine the amount of work you have put into designing and making these books. Lots of applause!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
