What a cute mini...I love seeing these little book shelf quilts!
How perfect for a retired librarian! I'm determined to make one of these for my daughter's classroom. This is so cute!
Love this, Karen! You've inspired me. I have thought about making a "bookish" quilt for a long time because of my book blog and love of reading...I hadn't thought of using the selvedges like you did, but that is a terrific idea. This one goes on my "to do someday" list!
wonderful mini and how appropriate. How did you make the book labels/titles?
HawkFan The book titles/authors/etc are selvedges except for the 'Readerowl" - It was fun to select them, difficult to sew them on straight!
Love the books - So cute!
Caribousmom and all, thanks! I updated the project to show the various tutorials I looked at, and some inspiration.
Thanks for those links, Karen!
This looks fantastic!! Love all the little book labels on everything. I would want this in my room, its way more organized and colorful than the bookshelf in there right now. You did a fantastic job on this!!
