The little prince

I love "the little prince" book. In fact it is my favorite book. My fox remind me of the fox in the story so I decided to use this for to make a "little prince" inspired quilt. I can just hope I will give it justice.

“I am looking for friends. What does that mean -- tame?"

"It is an act too often neglected," said the fox. "It means to establish ties." 

"To establish ties?" 

"Just that," said the fox. "To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world....”

  7. He looks like a very wise fox, just like the book. I like the background, a bit mysterious. Good work!

  8. I do love that quote, and it seems so appropriate that you used it, since you are definitely taming a fox. =)
