Working my way straight through this book:
Quilts from one of my favorite picture books.
Here's the beautiful, peaceful example from the story:
Blue and green with black in the corner.
And now, here's my version:
Every color with black in the corner!
and a wackadoo bubble print in between!
Love it!
Edited Oct 8: Fall Break plans change...needed a new car battery. Enjoying a loooong weekend at home.
Sneak peek at my next quilt:
These are taking a lot more thinking and planning than my usuals. 
Proud to say I've only had to pick out one seam!

I love this book, and I love to see your inspiration come to life.

One of my favorite books. I like your version better than what's in the book. Very bright and fun.

I love your colorful blocks! This is going to such a fun, happy quilt. Looks like a most excellent pattern book.

it's been a long time since I've read that book to my children. I did not know there was a quilter's book to go with it! I especially LOVE your first quilt- beautiful, and it focuses on colors, rather than pattern. I seem to be drawn to quils like that!

That's a very fun rainbow quilt!

Your rainbow version of the quilt is just beautiful! I've never seen the quilt book version, so I'm going to have to see if I can find it!

What a wonderful bubble quilt. I love your fabric choice and a great rainbow layout. I'm definitely putting it on my quilts to make list.

I love the Quiltmaker's Gift. I can't find my copy right now.... We moved twice in the last 2 years and some things are still packed.
Your first quilt there is a Puss in the Corner, isn't it? What is the second? They are both so cheery! Thanks for sharing them.
