DIY: Mini Bookshelf Quilt

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Americans (for the rest of you, happy Thursday)! I hope you are having a fabulous holiday, eating plenty of good food, and finding some quiet corners for reading and resting. Once the hoopla dies down, perhaps you’d like a crafting project for the long weekend? I would LOVE to know how to make a quilt, but I don’t. However, I just might try to follow these instructions to make this hanging quilt for my office. Even better… using this as a cover for a pillow for my office chair! (Now, just need to remember how to use my sewing machine – no big deal right? ;)) I also think it would make an adorable nursery hanging, featuring children’s books!

Would you attempt this one?

You will need: 
13 various scraps for your books   **see cutting step #1**
Various scraps of white fabric or another neutral, background color
1″ x 20″ strip of gray, brown, or other bookshelf colored solid fabric
Selvages or textual fabrics for book titles
Steam-a-Seam 2
Fat quarter for the background
Binding of your choice

(See the rest of the pattern and instructions here!)

  1. I want this quilt! I showed my mom and she is going to help me quilt it – of course, I know nothing about quilting, so it should be fun ;) Thanks for posting this! I’m excited! I’m already trying to think of what titles I want on my quilt ;)
