i have such a facination with children's books, and my art teacher is going to help me focus my portfolio around children's book illustration. this quilt gets me excited like none other.

Kill the sound and remember the words.

my son loved Richard Scary and now you have an illustration done as a block, this quilt will be a keepsake for the mother and child and the books will be loved even more because as that baby grows up it can touch a soft version of each book.

My little boy loves:

Go, Dog, Go (the full edition, not the board book), which has some really fun pictures, too
or Hand, Hand, Finger Thumb

Curious George (it is totally politically incorrect, but still a classic)

Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel

just a few I can think of off the top of my head that we read endlessly around here and would have pictures that would be fairly easy to make into blocks

Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel

My sons loved this book and I think it would make a great square.

Two of our all time favorites were The Big Red Barn by Margaret Wise Brown and Twenty-Four Robbers by Audrey Wood (we read these 2 so many times we all had them memorized and still, at 15 and 17, the boys remember parts of them.)

They also adored books about Franklin the Turtle and Clifford the Big Red Dog.

Such a great idea!  I love it!  Are they all applique?

This quilt is wonderful. You did a great job.

For the next quilt how about: Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina; Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow;  Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr, and John Archambault; In the Tall, Tall Grass by Denise Fleming; In the Small, Small Pond by Denise Fleming; Lunch by Denise Fleming;  Over in the Meadow (has been done by many authors); Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you See? by Bill Martin Jr.; The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle; The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle; Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister; The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams.  I second Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown

My students love several others but I will stop now.

What a lovely quilt!

As far as suggestions go for the new quilt, I'm not sure what's been said, but I love The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister and I was always such a fan of Clifford and Curious George books as a child.

Your Wild Things block was my favorite, by the way!
