Booklist for Story Quilts

Last night I finalized our list of 2023-2024 artists for Art History, and then today in my Waldorf Handwork Teacher Training for grade 7 we talked all about Faith Ringgold! The grade 7 project -- which we are doing all week -- is a Story Quilt. Here are the books Nicole brought in to help inspire us:


I have some books at home that are illustrated with fabric art. Salley Mavor illustrated a whole series of adorable nursery rhyme board books that my girls had when they were little. More recently, she did the artwork for Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes (2010) and My Bed: Enchanting Ways to Fall Asleep Around the World by Rebecca Bond (2020).

I also love Clare Beaton's Mother Goose Remembers (and hunting for the feather). Let me know if you find other books illustrated with textile art!
