Journal covers

Posted by solstice98 (My Page) on

I just made a couple journal covers as birthday presents for co-workers and was pleased with the way they turned out. I didn't have a pattern but it was easy; this would work for any type of book cover. In these I used small, blank-page journals from the book store (3 in a package for $8). It would be nice for a project journal, Christmas card lists, address book, vacation journal, etc. The fabric is less than one fat quarter (2 pieces 9"x16.5"), a bit of quilt batting, and some beads. I think I'll be making lots more of these for gifts and I'm sure the embellishments will get grander as I go!

Only the front is quilted. The back is flat to making writing in the journal easier. Can you see the beads on the page markers? The one on the tropical print is a little glass turtle.

They are gorgeous Kate. This would be a great idea for me to practice free motion qilting, yours looks great on the journals.

Kate,
I really like your journal covers. They are quite impressive. My DH past as I had them on the screen and said WOW. Your free motion quilting and your imbellishments are both great.

Thank you for all the nice comments! I really enjoyed making these and will be doing more. It is a great way to practice free motion quilting designs on a small enough scale so you don't mess it up too badly! LOL
