quilted cookbook

I’m really getting into making these journal/book covers.  

It’s like making a mini quilt with a purpose. 
This is a cookbook cover I made for a present to a co worker. Here it is laying flat before making it into the cover - mini quilt!

Front - her name is Ann Marie (look at the hat) and she has a black cat

Her husband on the back. This just goes to show how important a good sized fabric stash is. I had the perfect fabric already for her.

Inside - a slow cooker book. 
We eat lunch together at work and I bring a lot of slow cooker leftovers. She needs help in the cooking department so she will love it.

Happy holidays to all! 
Relax and enjoy, don’t stress. Christmas should be fun, not perfect 😉


  1. What a perfect gift! I love the fabric you chose. I'm sure she will be over the moon when she opens her gift. I will have to remember this for the future.
    Merry Christmas!

  2. Wow, what a great gift, your stash definitely is more complex than mine.

  3. It's a terrific gift and the fabric is perfection. Your friend will love it!
    Merry Christmas.
