The North Carolina Piedmont has snow! Unfortunately, it soon turned to sleet. And then snow again. So confusing! What it means for me and hubby is a day (plus more) of not venturing out of the house, and a crock pot full of chicken and goodness! For me, it also equals sewing!
Some time ago I pulled a bunch of fabrics in preparation of making a bookcase quilt. I have seen so many on the internet and have wanted to make one for a person who is a great lover of books.
For some of the books I inserted a piece of selvedge as a book title. For a few, I just used a plain piece of fabric. I really like the look of both! There are three shelves of books put together and trimmed – one to go which is in the process of piecing. I have some “wood” fabric that will be added as the shelves.
The goal on this snow day is to finish the top and then it’s off to the longarm quilter later this week. As for putting all that fabric away – Ugh!
I hope you are having a safe, warm and enjoyable day.
