Yesterday's Completions

For some reason I just couldn't get into the sewing swing yesterday.  I did manage to churn out five of these journals / notebooks with quilted covers. These have been good sellers in previous years.  I hope they sell well this year too.


5-Books

I used some orphan blocks and test blocks but I also did some piecing for these too.I did more piecing to upsize the blocks than anything but that takes just as much work.  I think I could have made a lap quilt almost as easily as making these five.  However, I do love having a variety of things for my customers to choose from.

I love the Journal covers! Beautiful! I agree, sometimes it is easier to make a quilt.

I gave my sister a quilted journal for her birthday this year, and she loved it. Yours turned out beautifully!

Ok Gene, I want to see the inside too!!! You were very productive and I'm impressed....you avoided temptation so well. Now could you teach me how to avoid temptation too?

Smiles,

I would say you were well into the swing of sewing. They are all beauties but I think the top left is my favorite. :-) Have a happy day!

If this was a non-productive day, I wonder what an ambitious day looks like! Love the journals!

They are so brightly colored and pretty, I can see why the customers buy them up!

I love them. I did try to make some to sell, but they looked quite different. Do you only sell on etsy or do you do shows?

I dropped my etsy and hope to do shows next year.

You'll do great either by etsy or show I am sure!!

Great covers...I've made a few of those before too. I have some journals, so maybe I should put that on my "to do" list. =)
