“It all began with a conversation at a Quilted Mouse Guild meeting in Calgary in 2015, a conversation about children’s books with quilted illustrations.  We talked about building a story around the delightful name of our guild.  I couldn’t get the idea of a mouse story out of my head. An early version of this story poem came to life that night. As the poem progressed, I drew images of possible illustrations, first as rough sketches, then more careful drawings.  The illustrations became a series of individual quilts.  Friends and quilting colleagues encouraged publishing The Little Grey Mouse and suggested taking the illustrations and the book on the road.  The “Little Grey Mouse” project was underway.” ~ Trudy Cowan
