the reader as quilter

One of my manias is collecting fabric (I have over 40 neatly labeled and sorted boxes of fabric in my quilting stash). Imagine my joy, when the world of children's books invaded the world of fabric design! I have a box of "The Wizard of Oz" prints; have just ordered prints inspired by The Jetsons, The Flintstones and the chocolate factory episode from "I Love Lucy"; I've cut out a jacket using 7-8 different Winnie the Pooh prints; have several Olivia (from the imagination of Ian Falconer) prints as well as a panel of The Very Hungry Caterpillar (courtesy of Eric Carle and Bill Martin, Jr.) for a wall hanging.

Two days ago, I was spending a little quality time at (fabric for quilters) when I discovered the latest: Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see? by Eric Carle and Bill Martin, Jr. The chase is now on and I will be visiting every quilt shop I know looking for it. I can't wait!

I think I need another Olivia pillow. :)
