More book wraps finished

These little projects are very addictive.   I've decided to use a lot of my dyed samples from Morley to make these for the Bookwrap Gem tombola at the Festival of Quilts.  All to fit A5 size sketchbooks, with a spine or up to 2cm width.  Cotton sheeting, hand-dyed with Procion MX and Procion P, then  machine quilted.  The last one, has an overlay of silk chiffon from somewhere or other.  These were also a chance to try out the Bernina edge stitch foot - well worth the money.

Bookwraps 5




  1. You're on a roll with those. They look great and just had a sneaky peak at the Bernini video -looks like a nifty foot. I'm a pfaff kinda gal myself, but I'm sure they do them too.

    Like you I have decided that this project is perfect for some fabric samples from the City & Guilds course. The perfect size. Book wraps here we come!

  2. You have been busy! These look really splendid. Do you have a standard pattern that you cut to? I'm thinking that I might make one or two as well...... but can't decide whether to leave overlaps/ provide a closure / add spine elastic!


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
