I was wondering about the "eye-spy" theme-- so the blue patch on bottom right would be something like "I spy a monkey, what do you see?"
Not quite like that (I know you can't see that square very good but it's actually the Cat in the Hat). Here's what I plan to do:
I sat down with the quilt and found 30 items on it that a child and/or parent and child can look for and then I'm planning to make that into an alphabetized list, cover it with plastic and give it with the quilt.
Here's an 'example' list for the following 2 squares (can you find them all)
pitchfork mouse eating corn backpack
weathervane ruler 3 chickens
hammer horse clock
When you have an entire quilt to look over, it takes awhile to find everything. I realize that when a baby is very small the quilt is just something pretty for them to look at but as they grow older, it becomes educational in a fun way!
