Gift for a Quilter or The Longest Project

My mother quilts. She recently completed something called a “Dear Jane” quilt using Civil War replica fabrics. I had someone cut a chipboard book of the word “Quilts.” Then I used some of her scrap fabrics from the Dear Jane project and incorporated them into this board book. I also incorporated snippets of several designs from the quilt blocks into the book design. Because I made this with my mother in mind I used her first initial, “K”, within the design of each page.

I started the Quilts board book in early fall 2013. My daughter was in 7th grade. She is now a freshman in college. In the middle, a lot of life happened. This week I finally sent Quilts to its intended recipient and she loves it.

Inside the book – I decorated the fronts and backs of each letter.
