The Library Stacks Quilt

What could be more fun for a book-themed quilt than an actual library stack full of tossed, leaning books?  Library Stack is just that quilt made of many things library and characterized as an actual full book shelf.  How amusing is that??!!  A perfect gift for the bookworm or someone with their own personal library, Library Stack can put you in a reading frame of mind while keeping you toasty warm.

Bookish is a collection of fabrics with images like Fleur,

In Circulation

and Pindot Lattice

that might be found on old book covers.  Dated encyclopedias and treasured classics covered in beautiful gold-encrusted bindings come to mind.  I absolutely love the background fabric, Book Return. 

It reminds me of the little cards found in the back of library books that were stamped when being checked out and returned.

Library Stack is simply constructed from rectangles, and triangles using the stitch-n-flip method.  There is a great deal of freedom for expressing personal creativity through fabric placement.  Allow yourself to make it your own and if you have any fabrics in your stash that fit the theme, use them!  It would be very easy to increase the size as well!  Be creative, enjoy the process and tickle your mind!

    I love this fabric and quilt. I’ve got to get busy so I finish a couple of projects and I can see about making a book club quilt. Wish I was more persistant in my sewing.

    This Quilt is so perfect for my Niece and Connecting threads does not have the pattern anymore, I can still get most of the fabric but does anyone have the pattern?
    Beautiful fabrics,
