This quilt was a gift to friend who is a member of my book group and her brand new baby.  It was a collaborative effort among the other book group members- each was responsible for making 2 patches to represent their favorite children's books.  We then also purchased the books and presented them to her when giving her the quilt.

It's beautiful!  I absolutely love it and wish I had one.  I recognize most of the books represented but not all of them, would it be too much trouble to ask for a list.

Oh, thanks so much for the replies!  When you've done something, it's like you're in a blind spot and it's impossible to tell if it's good or bad.  hard to be objective, you know?

From the left to the right starting with the top row (read like a book, aptly so)  the patches are as follows:
   One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish : Dr. Seuss
   Giving tree : Shel Silverstein
   Where the wild things are : Maurice Sendak
   Hungry Caterpillar : Eric Carle
   Corduroy : Don Freeman
   Knuffle bunny : Mo Willems
   Hands : Louis Ehlert
   Put me in the zoo : Robert Lopshire
   If you give a mouse a cookie : Laura Numeroff
   Harold's trip to the sky (purple crayon fame) : Crocket Johnson
   a number/ alphabet book from Sesame Street
   Richard Scarry's best first book ever : Richard Scarry
   
I'm personally responsible for "where the wild things are", "Knuffle bunny" and "Hands".

Yep, it's awesome!  I'm sure she loved it, and what a treasure for the baby...

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

Amazing!  I absolutely love it - all my favorite book characters in a cuddly quilt.  That will be quite a treasure for the child who gets it.
