Ok, I thought I was done making ideas with the Little Red Riding Hood fabric but....I had to do just one more thing. I thought it would be wonderful to make a Story Time Quilt. I went and got a book and with the help of the 10" Stackers, it was a quick and easy quilt to do. I quilted a pocket on the bottom right corner and used the Big Jumbo Rickrack to put on my borders. I love it. Can't wait to use it with one of my grandchildren!
I have to tell the funny story that went along with it though. Before I made the Story Time Quilt, of course I had to go get the book ( story ), I just ran into a book store and bought it and came right home. As I looked through it and began to read it ... I realized that the Mother in the story tell Little Red Riding Hood to go take some Wine and Cookies to her Grandmother, who isn't feeling well. I had never heard that version and I can only tell you what my 6 yr old Granddaughter would think about it...since we don't drink. I just smiled and headed right back to the bookstore. The lady wondered why I was bringing it back and when I told her, she too was surprised at that version and didn't want to disappoint my Granddaughter. Lucky for me they had another one, and in this one Little Red Riding Hood takes Lemonade and Cookies to her Grandmother. Yes, we can do Lemonade! :) Plus, the bonus was that this book cover was just the right colors to go with my quilt!
Just can't you imagine how much fun these little kids will have with their own Story Time Quilt. If you want the dimensions or have any questions about this or any of the It's A Girl projects...just email me!
Have a wonderful night dear friends!
