jennieingram--Beautiful! hmm, is the riddle something to do with the way it is quilted?

Nope.  It's just machine quilted.  Though the quilting does hopefully emphasise the theme. 

Here are the hints I gave my awesome partner, PINKLEO:
The title is "Here's Looking at You"
Can you find her hidden in the quilt?

If you're having trouble with the riddle, spend some time learning more about the author of the Curious George books.

Next, can you figure out not only what you are looking at, but where you are looking at it from? 
oh gees... and here I was thinking it was some sort of Casablanca riddle... :\

Yay! I figured out the riddle quilt ^_^ but I'm not telling! But it definitely reflects PinkLeo for who she is! It's incredibly sweet!

The lovely and talented Schnerby and I met up to exchange our quilts.  It was really lovely to meet a fellow craftster in person, and I am sure glad I chose Schnerby to be the first, she is lovely!
Here is a pic of our meeting.

More details of the quilt Schnerby made me, coming up in a jiffy.

As seen in the previous post, Schnerby and I were paired for this swap and as we both live within a trip to Melbourne, we decided to exchange in person.
Schnerby absolutely nailed my theme.  I am a VCAL teacher: VCAL is a hands on learning program for students who want to stay in education for their senior years but they generally don't intend to take up tertiary education, they want to go into trades.
I requested a quilt that spelled out VCAL for decorating our classroom. Schnerby got it in spades!
Overall shot:

Each of the letters is so cleverly constructed. The V is a pair of pliers, the C is three paint brushes, the A is 3 rulers and the L is 2 spanners.  Brilliant!  The sashing is decorated with the real deal, screws and bolts and the like. The background is printed with little gears that schnerby did with a potato, cool!
Here is a closer view of my favourite block, the L, I really love the texture on the spanners>

Check out the pliers, so cool and shadow quilted

I can't wait to put it up in our classroom the boys (and 3 girls) will love having something made just for them. But it is the start of 2 weeks holiday so it will have to wait.  Cry
Thanks to Schnerby for being such a lovely partner.  You rock!

It was great to meet up in person. The pic shows the colour of the lovely red much better.

I promise I was drinking soy hot chocolate, although I do look a little drunk in the picture  Cheesy
