I just posted on the home page asking a question and I can't even find my post!! My first try at it so maybe I just don't know how to do it but anyway.... my question is concerning material. I have been trying to find some book themed material and haven't been successful. I have found letters, number, the alphabet but nothing with books. Does anyone have any idea where I might look? I am a librarian and there have been a couple of projects I would do for work but can't find any fabric that will do. Thanks in advance.

    Hi I'm also new but if this helps, have you tried Connecting threads.com they have a new fabric collection with stacks of books!

    Thanks--I looked at Connecting Threads and it is actually what I'm looking for. I now need to figure out what pattern I want to do so I will know how much to order.

    I know at times it's difficult to find what your heart shows you'd like. I've seen quilts that have "books in them" that have each book spine hand pieced or made with iron on backing. The nice thing about this is that you can actually put specific books you'd like with specific titles. I'd love to see your finished project posted. I'm a real "book fiend" and love anything book related. My family probably has over 1000 books and we just never get rid of any of them . We raised our son with books and the library was a weekly enjoyable event for all of us. He's now well educated and a professional person and I always thank the librarians who contributed so much to his education and continued love of reading. Good luck

    I just ordered a small quilt kit from CT using the Bookish line of fabric. I'll let you know how things turn out. I thought if I really liked the fabric I would order yardage later. Thanks to all who told me about it.
