Children's Library BOM Block 7 Setting: Charlotte's Web
Welcome to the fourth year of our Exclusive Free Mystery Block of the Month by Pat Sloan! This year Pat's theme is 'The Children’s Library'. Each month Pat will share a favorite childhood book that needs to be in our library. Each month is a new book (or series) that is loved by so many.
You can find the block pattern download down the page below where Pat discusses the book.
The supply list and blocks during the year will always be found at our landing page for the mystery. You'll find a list of participating shops here. The three prior years are also still available at the ‘Mystery BOM’ tab above.
Pat Sloan on Charlotte's Web, by E.B. White
I love giving you the block setting early, that way you have some time to start setting the blocks you have done. Plus it’s a GREAT feeling to finish the last block and have the rest of the top already in it’s setting!
My setting is also devoted to a Children’s book. This month I’m inspired by ‘Charlotte’s Web.’
Being a girl, I really was drawn to stories about girls... toss in some cute animals and I was hooked!
Charlotte’s Web was written by American author E. B. White and illustrated by Garth Williams; it was published in October 15, 1952. I’m kind of amazed that a spider, considered quite icky by many girls, could become so popular, but Charlotte really had a way with things!
As a little girl I dreamed of having pets. I had hamsters, but I of course, always wanted a dog. Reading this book… following a little girl saving a pig, then having a spider continue on to save Wilbur again, was somewhat magical. And barn animals that talk? Why of course!
A timeless story often makes it’s way into a movie, and in 2006 Wilbur and Charlotte along with little Fern made it to the big screen with Julia Roberts as the voice of Charlotte, love that!
Have you seen the movie?
Here is the publisher’s website with some interesting links.
And here's the Wiki page for Charlotte’s Web.
And this is the Wiki page with more information about the 2006 movie.
Come see a second version of the block I did at my website plus a tutorial on how I am using a new to me ruler! You can also enter your quilt blocks in the Quilt show at my page! Learn more from Pat! And enter your quilt in the Quilt show!
