    Library quilt

    I made this quilt for a friendís son for Christmas. I have always wanted to make one of Wendy Etzelís quilts. I used her books ďThe Collectible Quilt # 1 & 2Ē



    I could not come up with a quilt that I thought he would like. His mother told me he loved to read, so I decided to make a quilt of his own library. I used his Encyclopedia set, and books from his favorite authors. Some books about things he is interested in.



    I added a cork board, fish tank, and all kids love video games. I used some photo

    fabric, to make some of the books and things on the cork board.



    I had a lot of fun making this quilt. It took longer to make, because I didnít have a pattern to follow. I still have to send it to the Quilter.
