I tell stories of Victorian Britain and beyond with this vast quilt.

My storytelling quilt in action. There are 20 blocks in the quilt, each with its own story. It would take too long to act out each story so I advise event organizers to select 5-6 blocks that they think their audience will like or find valuable. Those 5-6 stories are played together in a unique performance. Quilts are fantastic props for telling stories and fairly simple to make.
Is anyone else using a quilt as the basis of a play?
My quilt tells stories from Victorian Britain. A quilt could be made in any number of ways to tell stories about anything.
What other devices would enable the telling of fantastic tales?
