Fresh Sewing Day :):)

Hello Lovely Wonderful blog peoples :):) Thank you so much for visiting my tiny little art space...here in blog land!! Today I am hooking up with Lily's Quilts...Fresh Sewing Day. I only have one show and tell today and a sneak peek for a friend. As some of you know I host a Quiltie Trade here on my blog. We have been having a super time trading 4x6 quilties. I have been promising my Traders that I would show them how I was going to make a book out of my trades.  Well...as we all know life can run away with us!! But, never fear...I finally did it!!! I have 30 quilties so far that I wanted to make books out of...so I split them up into 2 groups of 15 quilties. Today's post is about the first set. 

I am sooo tickled with this book. :):) The book measures 4 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches. 

Each page (or Quiltie) is hand sewn into the cover and held there with buttons. This way I can read the backs of each quiltie and know who made it.

The spine...where all the pages are attached. 

A close up of my finished cover!! I am half way through the second book. Will show it soon. By the end of this year I will have 4 Quiltie books to display :):) I am very happy to have traded with each and every Lady who played along with me. Now I have a wonderful way to display my little treasures :):) 

If you are interested in joining in on our Quiltie Trade for this coming month...leave me a comment that you want to trade.....and I will get the information to you on how to join in on the fun.   Next months trade is June 15th.


Besides my Quiltie books..I got my Friendship Baskets made for my Buddy (Lesley). They are in the mail Sweets!! Here is your sneak peek :):)

I love to show off my sewing companions :):) (Daisy and Bella) They have a blog too!! Come and see HERE :):)

I will be posting a tutorial in a few days on how I put my Quilties books together...so be sure to come back and see:):)

Thanks for stopping by.....I LOVE it when you leave comments!! Be sure to check out all the other Blogs at Lily's Quilts.
