Dear Mr. Pinkwater,
I really enjoyed reading The Big Orange Splot. My brother got it our family’s copy from his third grade teacher back in 1993. In high school, I did a children’s literature course where I had to read one hundred children’s books and complete a related project. I decided to make a quilt inspired by your book. I always thought it would be cool to somehow show it to you but never realized you had a forum like this. Anyway, here is a picture of me finishing the quilt in 2005 and a picture of it all finished. Thank you for inspiring me and my family with your book!

That sounds like a great high school course, and you made a great quilt!  Thanks for showing it.
