"Once Upon a Time"....The possibilities are endless for bedtime stories, poems, or maybe a song with this baby quilt.
How about a story of the little bear who became his team's most valuable player.
Maybe there's a poem about the giraffe siblings who live at 123 PSE street.
And surely someone knows why the cat sits in the window at night and washes his face before going to bed under a clear sky filled with stars.
The entire quilt is full of wonders, all made from scraps of novelty prints with paper pieced wonky houses.
The binding is even scrappy, and no need for fancy quilting either because it would get lost in the string pattern. Lots of fun here for some little child who likes to pretend.
I like to pretend, but when we were little we said, "play like, this or that" instead of, "let's pretend".
I know some of these pictures are blurred; shaking old hands do that sort of thing. "Play like" they're clear.
