    Books on Shelves Quilt

    I have been searching for the quilt with books and items on shelves. Have looked thru a couple catalogs and searched on this board. I know someone made a really nice one, but I don't find it in my bookmarks. Thanks for any help.

    I hope you find the pattern you want. I can sort of visualize it, but I have no idea where I saw it. It had books and sort of looked like a library shelf? Maybe you could google it?

    There was a really good one on this board. It was titled My Aunt's Bookcase on Dec 21, 2011. I've never seen another one so good.

    Someone posted the name of a book called The Collectibles Quilt by Wendy Etzel. I bought it and it has lots of great ideas.

    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.

    There is a free pattern online, it is a Harry Potter shelves with books, Hedwig the owl, a wizard hat, etc. it is Fandom in stitches, it is set up like a block of the week- you could use just some of the modules if you didnt want to go all Hogwarts.

    I know people were making them in the late 1990's. May be in a book. I'm going to check on Amazon.

    I just saw a kit on quiltbug.com that has books on shelves,it may be a wall hanging not a full sized quilt but it looks like what you have described.
