Last Monday Fons & Porter had another cute idea.....this quilted notebook cover. They used a fabric that was already quilted. Pre-quilted would sure make the project go alot faster, but I used this opportunity to practice my free motion . There were several times during this step that I was thinking "WOE----hold her head up--she smells alfalpha"!! I was afraid I was going to sew through my finger!!
I was amazed the free motion step went fairly quick. I monogramed Shaylee's name on the pencil pocket and then basted all the pieces together to get ready for the binding.
Here it is all finished. The closure is supposed to be velcro. They used the stick on kind, but the velcro circles I had on hand didn't stick very well. What I had may have been too old, so I will have to see what they have at the fabric store. I really liked this project and plan on making some more. Like I said, if you had the pre-quilted fabric this would sew up really fast!!
