So my sister called and asked if I had any book fabric (which made me laugh because I'm a librarian). I had some different fabrics and this kit from Connecting threads. She really like the blue and white book stacks fabric so while we were on the phone I started cutting out the pattern. I figured if I had any leftover I could send it to her. Well it turned out that Connecting Threads had accidentally sent me two fat quarters of that fabric and I only needed one! She was worried I would need the fabric but I told her I had already cut out what I needed. She was really happy. And isn't this little bookworm cute?? I haven't sewed his eyes on yet -need to check with my long armer. So cute!
I'm thinking seriously of using the pattern to make a second book quilt. My younger son, Tig, had two fantastic teachers in elementary school-he's in seventh grade now and still refers to one of them as the best teacher ever. So what if I made two of these for them? It's a possibility.
