As I told you a couple of weeks ago, I have signed up for Sarah Fielke's "Coming Home" Block of the Month (it is actually a medallion quilt...) 2019. She sent out an email this week to everyone participating recommending that we each make a Block Book to keep our appliqué pieces in as we work on this quilt. She sent us the link to a short video explaining how to make the book.
I had just purchased a set of 4 sewing themed fat quarters earlier this month so I decided to use them for my book.
This project used up almost all of the fabric... I only have a few small scraps left.
I used the sewing machine fabric on the back of my book and for the pocket on the inside of the front cover. I had to add green strips to the side of the sewing machine fabric to make the pocket big enough.
There are 5 pieces of fleece for the pages which will hold the appliqué pieces.
Inside the back cover, I used the thimble fabric.
The green ribbon will be used to tie the book shut so the appliqué pieces stay secure inside when the book is shut. I also added handles so I carry the book easily.
My daughter has been adding some more stitches to her Prague cityscape and I spent some time with Frank this week as well. I have turned the corner...
Finn enjoyed some fresh snow this week.
I will link up with Kathy and the other Slow Stitchers in the morning.
