A Special Quilt

In January, I finished a special quilt top for a very special person. In March it made its way to the long arm quilter then back home to be bound. It was an absolute delight to finally gift this quilt in April for its intended recipient. This gentleman has an extensive book collection is why I chose the bookshelf quilt.

He does have a cat, so one sits on one of the shelves. The coffee mug has the first initial of his name, and the brass nameplate says “Chef”, which is his profession. A scattering of books has a “title.” For some, I used a selvedge, others just a narrow strip of print fabric.

The backing is an Anna Maria Horner fabric that I just happened to have in my stash – Score! It could not have been more perfect!

And here he is with his personal quilt! My hope is that this quilt gives him as much joy as it has given me.

  1. Love, love, LOVE this!! The personalization you’ve added is so fun. That pretty much looks like my bookcase except for the kitty! I’ve always wanted to make one of these. You are inspiring me to bump it up on my to-do list. Yours turned out just fab. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. It really is spectacular, Joyce ❤️

  4. What a fun finish and the Chef’s eyes look like he’s smiling with joy behind the quilt! What a treasure! 😉

  5. Joyce. This is a “work of art” and a “work of heart” obviously. I love it. J
