More obsession on small projects prevailed this summer. After the Double Pocket Pouch, it was the turn of the Quilted Composition Book Cover. I used the tutorial by Ellison Lane for this.
It all started when I made the first composition book cover for a swap during the PNWMQG meet up which was organized by the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild in August 2015.
I had a bunch of EPP hexies laying around that I repurposed to make the composition book cover. Love how it turned out.
Then during the meet up I started on some Kantha hand quilting after being inspired by a recent trip to Peru. What started as improv quilting was eventually turned into a cover for my quilting journal.
I used left over embroidery floss and Perle cotton thread from past projects given to me by my mom. I absolutely love the texture the hand quilting creates.
Followed this up with two more Seattle Sounders book covers as back to school gifts for some kiddos.
I modified the design slightly to add pouches on the inside for stationery.
The pocket stays in place secured by a small velcro tab.
This is a quick easy project and makes a great gift.
