Larry these quilts are absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing a
wonderful idea. I love the idea of using paint spattered papers (ala
Eric Carle) and creating the repeated patterns. This is an idea that can
be used for children of all ages. In most cases, the older the child,
the more intricate the patterns would be.
