The Bookcase Quilt: a short story

It’s short and sweet today.

I haven’t had much time for sewing in the last 3 or 4 days, and what time I’ve had was earmarked for completing my F²F August blocks for Susan so they could go off before we went away. They’re now done and in the mail, and with a couple of hours in hand, I’ve powered on and got another shelf done on the Bookcase Quilt. It’s the one at bottom right. I have the colours sorted for two more.

Book case progress 25-8I’m just over halfway through making blocks; 4 more to go, then I shall make sandwiches of all of them, quilt, cut and sew on the sashing front and back, and then bind it. I shall get it done before Lucy goes back to Sydney if all goes well.

I’ll post while I’m away, but I’m not sure when and on what subject. I’m sure I’ll find something to share with you!

Right, time to go and start packing!

    The mug and the bowl make your book shelves even more perfect! It is going to be one gorgeous quilt. Hope your trip is going well.

      I’m glad you’re enjoying it – I have a family photo and her owl bookends to add to future shelves! We’ve now arrived at our destination, and look forward to relaxing a bit…

      I’m glad you like it – I’ll need to work hard on it when I get back so it’s done for when she has to go back to Sydney, but I reckon I’ll get it done in time…

    I do like the way you have the black labels on the books. That is a nice touch I haven’t seen in these quilts before.
