Finished Mini Quilt Book

Well here is my Quilt Book all finished.

This was such a fun project, Lenna writes a great class. I look forward to making more of these books. I have to as there are so many ways to bind the pages and I need to try them all.

I joined the pages in this book concertina style and made a wrap around cover; sewing the last page to the back inside cover.

I stamped the verse onto calico and sewed it to the cover. I loved the fluffy selvage on this fabric so decided to make a feature of it. I sewed a pattern down the edge to enhance it.
Ribbons and beads bind it all.

Alis, I am truly honored by your very kind comments about my mini art fabric book class and the beautiful quilties (& Book) that you created through taking this course. Thank you so much for writing in to the joggles forum and sharing the location where I could view your quilties. If you hadn't, I might not have found your blog or website!

I really appreciate the time you spent uploading your work and I absolutely love how you have used the images of women on your fabric pages. Just beautiful!

thank you again.

I just love this Alis! I would love to hold that lovely thick book in my hands and just feel it. I just enjoy visiting fabric shops feeling all the materials and your book makes me feel like that.
