My childrens book is called Cassie's Word Quilt by Faith Ringgold. The only thing I could envision was a crossword quilt. DH worked out the crossword for me, I tweaked it a bit and turned it into this design. It is very cool. I was stitching the squares together this past Saturday at a ladies craft retreat. It was a huge attention grabber which just added to my enthusiasm of the day.
So here is my progress so far.... the center is nearly sewn together. Just a few more rows to join and 2 borders to add. All these words were a part of the book.
This is what's on my design wall today. I'm linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times where you can see all the other creativity going on today.
