Cloth Book

 Cloth books are a great favorite for babies.  Although they were sold for decades in the 20th century, it's only recently that quilters could buy panels to assemble their own.  I love one that I found that appears to have been made in the late 1950s or during the 1960s. Kudos to this enterprising maker who used embroidery transfers!

Have a safe and happy day!


  1. I love this one!! My mother made one of a kind cloth books for each of her grandchildren. I have made a few but none as special as this one. It is great inspiration for some of my vintage linens with stains and holes that would be great to repurpose!

  2. A great way to learn the birds and the bees and some animals.

  3. A number of years ago I purchased a panel for a cloth book, and turned it into aa baby quilt top, later gifted to a new grandmother who is a friend of mine. She loved it!
