I am hooked! As a retired librarian and bookaholic I can't wait to begin my first block. Thank you.


I'm in. Last year I challenged myself to complete a project a day(365) and blog about it. I was inspired by the movie "Julie and Julia". I soon realized that my schedule made it unrealistic. However, I didn't feel like a failure because I did complete a variety of projects and attempted projects I would have never normally tried. I made several fleece blankets, a few pillowcase dresses ( new project), 3 tote bags ( two with lining-this was new skill learned), several tissue covers ( including making one on a serger), a dress for myself ( I wore it and got many compliments), some quilt blocks that I used think were too complicated to try (Leymoyne Star) , a few pillow cases, a pair of pajama pants for my daughter's 18" doll ( first time making things for dolls since I was a little girl), and a pair of quilted oven mitts. I started a T-shirt quilt ( so that is one UFO that I will put on the list to finish.) Thanks for this challenge.

Gosh, I tried to resist, but I caved after reading the story and seeing all the beautiful blocks. This quilt along should be a lot of fun. Pinocchio is my favorite childhood book with Bambi a close second.


El libro es precioso. Yo tenía un alfabeto y cada letra era un animalito. Me encantaba verlo, incluso cuando tenía 10 u 11 años. Era lindo en verdad. Pero después con tantos cambios de casa se ha perdido: me da mucha pena no tenerlo.


This (http://www.indygojunction.com/A-Stitch-in-Time-with-Mother-Goose-p/pab12301.htm) is what I asked for Christmas since I'm going to be a first time grandmother in mid-May. How timely your mystery block is!


I would love to participate -- what a cute block -- but when I try to download the pattern McAfee gives me a severe warning. Is there any other way to get the pattern/measurements?

Love all the different fabrics. Martha the ducks are too cute.

Bertie Martin

K pat I'm in I can't stand just looking at all the blocks from everyone. So my first.

Dianna Eickhorn

Love your block so much in your fabrics. I can't help myself! Using your fabrics too, but, different. Whoohoooo!

My mother ended up buying a whole 20 volume set of Childcraft when I was 3 because I was so enamored with the first book in the set which was Mother Goose rhymes with amazing illustrations. I'm 62 now and still have that book. Looking forward so much to creating my batik mystery quilt.

AWESOME!!!! When I was little, we had the Mother Goose record. (yup ...that old!!) There was a part on that record where I cried every single time it played!! I'm trying to remember what verse of her rhymes it was... ;-)
