Elsie Piddock Skips in Her Sleep
I hope this reveal day finds everyone safe and well. I can't wait to see everyone's quilts and find out which books have been chosen to make scenes from. I found it very hard to decide but eventually I made this quilt based on a scene from a wonderful children's book by Eleanor Farjeon called "Elsie Piddock Skips In Her Sleep". In this scene, little Elsie Piddock, who is a 'natural born skipper' is having a lesson from Andy Spandy, the fairies' skipping master. I have described the making of this quilt and some more of the story on Rainbow Hare.
