Over the last couple of weeks I have been making lots of covers for notebooks and diaries. I had quite a production line going.
First, was cutting lots of 9-inch wide strips of iron-on pellon
Then choosing fabrics
Cutting into mounds of strips all one and a half inches wide –
And sewing onto the pellon as quilt-as-you-go –
To make these lovely pieces of stripped fabrics –
All finished and stacked ready on the ‘shelf’. Visual diaries on the left, calendar diaries in the middle and lined notebooks on the right. Smaller sized books flat on the table. The display includes the few I had left from market days.
I think that’s enough books for a while, for markets as well as taking to the Deloraine Craft Fair in 3 weeks’ time.
Tomorrow, I am back in my studio. As it is forecast to be quite warm, I think I will be painting the fabric for the quilt I want to take to Deloraine !
