Storybooks and Quilts to Go

Introducing children to quilting traditions one book and quilt at a time

A cozy quilt and an engaging picture book can be an irresistible combination. To bring the quilting tradition to life for today’s children, the Greater San Antonio Quilt Guild has created over 100 Storybook Quilt Kits. These kits include a picture book and a handmade quilt complementing the story. Many of the kits feature books with quilting themes. The quilts vary in size, but like their printed companions, are made to be shared, touched and loved. The Storybook Quilt Kits are loaned to local schools and libraries where teachers and librarians share them with students.
For additional information or to become a participating user of the Storybook Quilt Kit collection, please contact the Guild via phone or email.
