Is Mother Goose Still Alive?

I just finished a quilt for my newest great-grandson, Grayson. A couple of weeks ago I was wondering if I had made that baby his own quilt when his mom posted a picture on FB of him "enjoying the colors on his brother's quilt." Guess that was my answer!
I had some nursery rhyme pictures that were intriguing and I hoped the older brothers (ages seven and five) would enjoy telling baby brother the stories. Then I thought, "Do children hear Mother Goose nursery rhymes today?" I wrote the boys a letter and included several photos of the scenes and asked if they knew these stories and if they would like to tell baby brother about them. This might also help involve them when brother received a gift and they did not. I mailed the letter about a week before I sent the quilt.

I asked "Who are these characters?" "What are they doing?"

 Then I asked, "What is happening here?"

I asked, "Do you know the story of the Three Little Kittens Who Lost Their Mittens?"

I had to include a picture of Elizabeth slowing my progress.

What a great quilt! Lucky baby! Great way to bring those fun nursery rhymes back to life. Guess the older siblings can do a Google search!

Oh my goodness I loved Mother Goose stories as a kid and I hope children are still growing up and reading them. That quilt looks awesome and a great way to share those stories!
