These little needle books in honor of Presidents Day. I had to wait until I gave some to friends before sharing them here.
Look at those handsome devils.
I realized these were a perfect size for a little book.
You can bet I'll be on the look out for fabric that lend themselves to needle books~
Making the prototype and figuring out cutting -
Morning work station - so much easier to do when everything is pre-cut.
Front - crooked (which is why it is mine and not a friends)
Inside. I used ultra suede. A little thick, but the color was good.
Back - a little heavy on the glue - again, that is why it's mine.
You can make your own if you follow the general instructions of the coffin needle case on the tab at the top of the blog.
Finished the hand quilting on this:
I'm thinking I'll bind it in red.
Here are flying geese units that I'm trading with Susan and Jill (the cupcakes). We're going with solids and modern/bright fabric. I know, a departure for us!
I recently realized you can get the streak of lightening with these - a real ah-ha moment for me.
and finally thanks Anna for the Moda fabric. If you need moda, Thimbleanna is your go to gal!
I ordered 90" wide, so no pieced borders or backing - yahoo!
See you on Friday for a new blog feature I'll be calling:
Fun For Fridays
