Revised Mother Goose Quilt Blocks With Verses

The stitching of the verses was finished a while ago, but I just got around to taking photos.  The Old Woman in the Shoe verse got a little jammed up, but I wanted to include the part where she whips them all soundly.  There are several “nice” versions of the Old Woman in the Shoe rhyme out there that are really nauseating.

My stitching on the verses is not as neat as I would have liked — I just couldn’t get it looking perfect and I eventually just gave up and decided it was fine.  I need to come up with a plan for the top since I don’t even know how many blocks to make.  I’m sure an idea will come to me pretty soon… or I’ll just stick it in a shoebox with a label and move on to another project.
