Story Time: Picture Quilts to Stir a Child’s Imagination by Kim Gaddy contains eight charming quilts and a project with instructions to use it in various ways that will enchant the special young child in your life. With each quilt, Kim presents the idea behind it. The rest ofthe story is up to you and your child. What is the puppy doing? Is the bunny getting ready for bed? Will the cat catch a fish? What are the animals in Old McDonald’s farm? What flavors of ice cream are the pigs eating? These and other friendly characters go about their lives in a series of simply-pieced picture blocks. Some appliqué and embroidery are used to enhance the quilts.
Kim hopes you will make one of these quilts and use it to start a conversation, have a laugh, sing a song, or better yet, inspire you to make up your own stories. It will be that much better to snuggle in afterward. Put their favorite character on a bib or a shirt.
Kim is a long-time sewer, and button maker who designs quilting and wool appliqué patterns. She also hand-dyes wool, has two teenagers, helps her husband with his hardware business and has just opened a quilt shop in Austin, Texas.
