My husband is a keen gardener, and always complains that he can never remember where he's planted stuff in the borders. He needed a notebook to scribble all his gardening notes in... so a journal cover has been pieced together using fabrics from Swan Cottage collection by Lynette Anderson Designs teamed with a free stitchery design, available as a free PDF download from Lynette's blog...
...I chose a selection of embroidery threads in colours to coordinate with the colours of the fabrics. The machine quilting was kept simple, using a variegated King Tut quilting thread...
...the inside is also as neat as the outside, with no raw edges on show! This one has been made to fit an A5 notebook, which is easy to replace when the notebook is full.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
