At It Again

Notebooks, that is.  I have been making more quilted notebook covers and even a couple of quilted photo albums.  Last year at the sale, a lady opened a couple of the notebooks, sighed and said "Grandma's need brag books!"  So I am accommodating the buying public.  I really hope she shows up this year!
Here is what the ones I have with me look like:

The two small ones on the lower right are photo books (they are kind of in a shadow.) This brings me to a total of 12 notebooks and two photo albums in the last week.

I also started quilting the "Pink Diamonds" quilt.  I am doing it all free motion, even though I did a lot of "straight lines"  (they are NOT very straight, they are "organic")

I have been pretty productive this week!  Now I think I will pack it in and enjoy this beautiful Saturday afternoon.

I'm trying to decide how to quilt my finished top...I don't think I can even begin to afford Long-arm quilting, but the entire quilting process intimidates me. =( I like your "organic" lines. It makes me feel better. =)

The photo albums are great ideas! And I love the term "organic" straight lines. LOL

I don't think just Grandma's need these, but everyone. I know I'd love one. Great job Gene.
These would certainly make great gifts too!

Love all the notebook covers. Of course I am drawn to the bright ones.

Your Pink Diamonds is looking great. Like everyone else I love organic lines. Grandma used to say I couldn't draw a straight line with a ruler. lol Now I use my crooked lines to my advantage.

Great covers, I like the colors and the quilting. The organic lines and spirals circles add a lot to the covers. Wonderful job
