Imagine : Hobson Quilt II

First, thank you for all the nice comments here and at the Moda Bake Shop.  It's hard to know, when you're writing it, if your tutorial is going to make sense to anybody other than yourself!

If you recall, this was the sunny block I made on my birthday.  I created it specifically for a live auction item at our preschool.   Every year you have a chance to win a story time visit from the school's director, so exciting for the kids!  The child will have this quilt as a keepsake of her visit.


I chose some of my favorite story-like prints.  My mom especially liked the row of chairs, as if the kids can sit for story time in them. 


A few bees, flowers, and an inchworm.


I loved the green and yellow stripes on the back.  On my label I named the quilt "Imagine"  because that's a gift Hobson gives to the children. 


The dotty green binding was just the perfect frame.


I wish Becket was still holding this one!

Oh, Oh..the dark Orange fabric with the ovals in it!

I saw it someplace else, but can't remember where.

The image has been stuck in my head for months...does anyone know who makes that fabric and what it is called?
