Books about Quilts for Children
I am often asked to recommend books that are suitable for children that have a quilting theme. I have been doing some research and have come up with the following books. Perhaps you’ll find one of these suitable for your little ones. I have found these books on Amazon.com and include a link to that site, for each book.
