My local library marked its 25th Anniversary in 2015. Somewhere along the way, I thought it would be neat to make a quilt for the library for it's celebration. And I thought the Books-for-Baby quilt from Patchwork Please would be a great quilt. Only one problem, I didn't have enough (meaning hardly any) child novelty fabrics that would work as the 25 book covers I was hoping to make. So the project got put on hold.
Right before the holidays in December, someone started a "Get Your Quilty Wishes Granted" movement on Instagram. It was the chance I was looking for to get some novelty fabrics, so I posted my wish. And had it granted, several times over. I received fabrics from around the country and across the ocean. Now the hard part is going to be selecting which 25 I put into the quilt!
Today I spent some time playing around in EQ7, drawing the block, dropping in stock fabrics, and thinking about background, accent, and border fabrics.
