Kelly, the paper piecing pro, wasted no time in designing and sharing templates with me, letting me create the quilt top that I have floating in my head. What wonderful generosity!
To say thank you, I made her a notebook cover using her flying goose templates and my notebook tutorial. I combined Essex Linen in Navy as the background with Cotton & Steel basics (from my stash, not the shop). There's a book mark ribbon to keep her place and a little button/ribbon closure so the contents are not damaged when it's tossed in a bag on the run.
|Wishing now that I did my nails before this photo shoot! Yikes!|
The pockets to hold the front and back cover are also Cotton & Steel basics with a Cotton & Steel lining to coordinate with the exterior.
I hope she likes it. I hope she thinks it's fun, colorful and happy, inspiring her to design and create because she certainly gave that gift to me. Its by sharing, inspiring, teaching and encouraging that this quilting community is as wonderful and kind as it is. Its' people like my fairy template godmother who make this community such a special place. Thank you.
