Mama's New Job

Our local quilt guild has a program called Storybook Quilts in which we make small quilts to go along with children's books that reference quilts. I chose the book The Berenstain Bears and Mama's New Job.
Mama Bear decides to start a quilting business and she dreams up this design to make.

This is my version of the quilt.

The Allen Quilters' Guild has made several quilts to share and teacher's can check them out through their school library. The kids love being able to pass the quilt around while their teacher reads the book to them.

What a neat program and that is a precious quilt! I always take one or two quilts with me when I do storytime in a friend's classroom so the kids can sit on them on the floor.

That's awesome! Why didn't I know about this initiative?

What a wonderful idea. How beautiful the quilt is that you have done, of course. Berenstein Bears always were our favorites.
