Bee Library Quilt

As many of you will know I am a member of various quilting bees. April 2011 is my month to provide a theme for two of my bees – Sew Buzzy and Fresh & Funky Quilting Bee. After a lot of thought and browsing through blogs and flickr photos I decided to go with making a book quilt.

I am an avid reader (as is Cupcake Proncess) and I couldn’t miss this opportunity to combine my two favourite pastimes.

I started off by asking all the quilting bee members to tell me their favourite childrens book, fiction book, cookery book and craft book. I then gathered together fabrics for each of the themes – the colour range that I have gone for is green/pink with a hint of blue.

I put together some loose instructions for putting together the book block – which you can see on the Book Block Instructions page.

I will come back and let you know how it goes once the blocks start to come back in from everyone! (Now I need to get all the envelopes written and packages in the post!)
