I wanted to thank everyone that sent me sheet scraps by sending them a little something in return.
I bought a stack of moleskins with the intent of taking pieces from my scrap box and making some stitched notebooks similar to the ones in Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts. Once I finished my quilt, though, I took a different course.
I used more of the sheet scraps and made bloom notebooks. I was a bit concerned that all the stitching would weaken the cover, but it didn’t. I took the same approach to the stitching as I did in my bloom quilt except that my letters turned out WAY better on these. I think it was because they are on a smaller scale, but who knows? I love how they turned out.
Everyone was so generous adding to my fabric garden with their scraps. I wouldn’t have been able to make my quilt without their help. This is just a small token of my appreciation. Thanks to all 16 of you!
(Tonya, I didn’t mail yours. I will get it to you when I get home).
I think you will probably see more stitched paper from me in the future. These were so fun to make and the ideas keep coming.
