Quilted Notebook Cover, Hot off the Press...



I used a pattern from Piney Patch Quiltworks, an online source of patterns and kits, to make this quilted gift for my daughter-in-law's upcoming birthday. I'm ahead of schedule, and have it completed in plenty of time to mail.



This was my first experience with using fusible fleece for the batting. Pretty good stuff. I like the pen pocket, business card holder, and additonal pocket for storing things. I'm sure I'll use this pattern again. It also included tips for using other sizes of wirebound notebooks.

Nancy,
What a wonderful gift. I'm sure she will be touched that you made it for her. It looks great made up in Batiks, too.

Nancy, I love this! What a great present. I'll have to check that pattern out. That's something I'd love to make as gifts too.

I've made notebook covers that look similar to this pattern but your cover is spectacular!
