Miss K's Library

After seeing the book case quilt on the internet a year or so ago, I finally decided to try it.  I looked at several quilts and came up with this design.  It all started with one strip of leftover fabric from my last quilt.  The selvage had an interesting name for the fabric so I decided I would use other selvage pieces as book titles.  I had found the dark brown fabric which reminded me of our walnut book shelves.  Then I thought of someone who mentioned that they would like one of these quilts so I threw in a couple of things to personalize it a bit.  She doesn't know about this yet, but she will.....

I had to use the soft cuddle flannel fabric for the backing.  You all know how I love flannel backings.  Of course I had just the perfect bolt of flannel.  Chocolate brown with cream colored paw prints.

The quilt finished at about 69" x 72".  I call this one "Miss K's Library".

It was a fun project and I may have to make another one too!  I made a matching pillowcase 'cause you all know I do not like to wrap gifts!

Used a combination of ideas found on the internet.

Fun to use different techniques too.  See the kittens blue eyes?
Added a personal touch for the future quilt owner.

Love the backing.  Fun all over machine quilting.

Oh yes, a matching pillow case too.
