library quilt

aka what to make for the librarian in the family

some folks are just difficult to buy for. in this case, my mother-in-law. when i stumbled across this idea on pinterest, i was at the fabric store in a heartbeat.

inspiration

this quilt is stunning
a book skirt?!? amazing!
don’t call me betsy gives very explicit directions here

with a mix of sourced fabrics as well as some preowned, the line up came together as such.

i didn’t follow ‘betsy’s’ cutting instructions as i wanted to ensure each of my fabrics would represent in the final product the way i wanted them to. having never done this before, i was originally going for a table runner for her dining room table, but it ultimately ended up as a 18″ x 18″ square.
