Guest Blogger, Kiera, and her fun Bookish projects!

Hi again!  It’s Kiki from It’s Sew Kiki.  I want to share with you just how wonderful I think Connecting Threads‘ new fabric line, Bookish is. One of my very favorite things to do, besides sew, is to read.  I usually read around 2 books a week!  There are books stashed everywhere in our house.  So when I saw this fabric, I had the perfect little design in mind.  I made this little Table Topper for my end table in my living room.  I called it Library Card and the pattern is available as a free download from Connecting Threads!










This fabric is just so cute.  I love the stacks of books, the Librarian behind the desk and the stamped dates.  I’m old enough to remember when they used to stamp the due date on a card in front of the book.  Now it’s all done electronically! I also made another little Table Topper that I called “OverDue Books”.  For this one I have a tutorial up on my blog. I love the fussy cut center of the Librarian.  Doesn’t she look like she just wants to “Shhhhhh”  someone?










I don’t know how they do it at Connecting Threads.  They keep coming out with the cutest fabric.  I want it all! I hope you’ll channel your inner bookworm and check this fabric out.  I think it’s a perfect fabric to make some end of year gifts for teachers.  Maybe a Table Topper or a set of coasters.  Maybe some bookmarks.  So many ideas….give one a try!

    I really like this fabric series from Connecting Threads.
    I am just deciding what to order from this group. The table toppers are very cute.

    Kiera, you are like a forest on fire. You are turning out these new patterns like a wilffire. I just love all the works you are doing. I am trying to get caught up so that I can start with your blocks and make a sampler quilt. Keep up the great work.
