Hines, Anna Grossnickle: -

Anna Grossnickle Hines is the popular creator of numerous books for children. Though she has sewn enough dolls and stuffed animals to fill a well-stocked toy store, and made a few simple quilts for her three daughters, Anna did not do any serious quilting until she decided to use quilts to illustrate the poems in this book. Inspired by her mother, who has been making prizewinning quilts since her retirement, Anna made her first quilt for the book in 1996. Working between other projects, she pieced four more over the next two years, and from April through November 1999 made the fourteen remaining quilts.

Anna Grossnickle Hines lives with her family in Gualala, California.
