Introducing Bookish!

Love to read? Love to quilt? As an avid reader and passionate quilter, I am crazy about the Bookish collection and its projects. As soon as I saw the Bookish fabrics with stacks and shelves of books, book return stamps and other book-related designs, I started thinking of snuggling up with a good book, exploring the library and going to book club. My favorite design, the Spiral Bookcase with concentric circles of books, is featured in four projects.

Imagine curling up in a cozy chair with a good read and the Literary Lounger or Library Stacks lap quilt.

On the table next to you, a steaming cup of tea and a snack is sitting on a Mug Rug.

On the wall, between ladened book shelves, is the Quiet Please wall hanging with a librarian saying Shhhh! so you can relax and read in peace.

Perhaps there is a Check It Out Floor Quilt nearby with a child perched on his own Book Floor Pillow eagerly reading a story book he carried in his Junior Backpack.

If you are off to book club, carry your book and writing supplies in the perfectly-sized Vintage Book Bag.

If the meeting is at your house, Check It Out or Quiet Please may be used as a table topper. Impress your friends with a Mug Rug & Napkin for their glass of wine and finger foods.
The projects made with the Bookish collection kits and patterns are also great gifts for the readers in your life. Delight a friend with the Vintage Book Bag for visits to the library, a Literary Lounger or Library Stacks lap quilt or a set of Mug Rugs & Napkins. Encourage a child to read by giving the book-themed Junior Backpack, Check It Out Floor Quilt or Book Floor Pillow. The Tech Pocket & Portfolio pattern is perfect for anyone using an e-reader. If you or someone you know loves to read, the Bookish collection will be a favorite!

    Today was Read all day at school.I am sure teachers are going to love this fabric for curtains to cover windows, nooks and more. I also see a new lunch bag to start 2012-2013 school year.

    I was wondering if you still had any of the Bookish fabric available. I searched Etsy (my usual source for older fabric lines), to no avail. I’m a librarian who just got back into sewing in the past two years, so I missed this when it first came out. Thank you!

      Snow, I am sorry to say that we have no Bookish fabric available, not even in our own CT stash here at work. I loved that collection too – but it was about 3-4 years ago I think. One of our staff recommended you post a message on the Main Page of our social community website, Quilt with Us. Perhaps a long-time customer will have some available. Good luck!
