What a fun and educational quilt! Numbers along two sides, letters across two other sides, and shapes in the middle make this a great learning quilt. In addition there is a list on the back of the quilt of items to look for in the fabrics such as an ant or a fish or a strawberry. I, too, got in the spirit of the quilt and combined two edge to edge patterns full of animals including lions, tigers, zebras, elephants, hippos, monkeys and giraffes. Fantastic!
