That's just what I was going to say!  I love those Sandra Boyton books. How about a hippo square?

This is amazing!   What a wonderfiul and precious gift!! On-point would make the next one a little different.  And hw about "Rainbow Fish" or "Be Nice to Spiders" or "Everybody Needs A Rock" or "Stand Back Said the Elephant, I'm Going To Sneeze" or "I Love You This Much" or "Horton Hatches an Egg" I love those books.

That quilt is fantastic - It's on my list of things to do! What inspiration!
I agree with some others - Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a classic, Rainbow fish is great!

I didn't read to see if these were mentioned, but I think Madeline or Olivia the Pig would be cute, and they are great books.

"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.

Wow! I would love a quilt like that for myself - er - for my baby...

As for a food patch - the first thing that popped up in my head is "Green Eggs and Ham"...

 SmileyMy book club is starting to plan for our next book quilt for another new book baby on the way.  On this next quilt, I am planning to make a patch for "how are you peeling: foods with moods" and I'm up in the air on my second patch.  Does anybody out there have any suggestions?  This new baby on the way is going to be a boy...
Also, does anybody want to offer any ideas on how to change the layout etc of the quilt?  It would be nice to surprise our pregnant mom with something a little different.  I do want to keep children's books as the theme... 

I almost missed your request for help...you might want to separate it into a different thread altogether so it won't get overlooked.

As to another children's book? If it doesn't have to be food themed, how about Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing http://www.amazon.com/Animals-Should-Definitely-Wear-Clothing/dp/0689708076/ref=sr_1_1/103-9193939-2674264?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1182518664&sr=1-1
Such a fun book!

Something a trifle different, style wise: how about designing the quilt blocks diagonally, and then turning all of them diagonally, so they're on point, in a diamond type design. It will be a little more difficult, but with your skills you're certainly up to it.
