Hi Barbara!
  Barbara Valenta's posting explains:

and then iron on

  The quilt done this way had all the images and text sewn into blocks.
These story books and artists books by middle school students are on
display at the Branigan Cultural Center in Las Cruces, NM til Apr. 10,
(along with a show I'm in--Voices and Visions: A Collaborative Exhibit of
Women Artists and Writers. Another version of ours will be at Guadalupe
Fine Art in Santa Fe, through April 6.)

  Sounds like something you could do w/your kids in Minnesota!
