    Looking for a "Bookcase"quilt pattern

    I think I remember a quilt pattern a few years ago that looked like a bookcase with books on the shelves. I don't remember how the "books" were made. Do any of you know where I could locate the pattern? Thanks so much for your help.

    Connecting Threads has a fabric line out now called "Bookish" and one of the kits for it is a books in a bookshelf quilt. Thought you might be interested in taking a look at it. It is not free but their kits are reasonably priced just like their fabric.

    There's a really wonderful pattern called "Book Club" in the Modern Quilt workshop book by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr. If you want a picture of it, let me know and I'll take one with my phone and email it to you. If you don't have this book, you should get it--amazing patterns in it.

    This is my favorite. I am working on cutting pieces for this right now. I am going to personalize it with a kitten, photos of grandchildren in silver frames, etc. It is in Australian Patchwork & Quilting, Vol 17 Num 8, pg 54. The size is 43 1/2" x 74 3/4" but could easily be enlarged or reduced.

    This is awesome! I want to one for my daughter and I am so excited! What is on the left side of the bookcase? And, is this a picture of a picture? I would love to follow your progress!

    I bought a paperback quilt pattern that I haven't seen since I moved. Lots of ideas on Google:

    I see this type of quilt pattern all over Facebook lately. Bookcase quilts must be popular now.
    I love my life!

    Someone made one on here using selvedges for book titles which was very impressive. I have also seen books with titles in embroidery. Harrypotter has a bookcase quilt as well with ornaments.

    there's also Craftsy's free paper-piecing pattern called 'the Project of Doom', which, although it has a Harry Potter theme, you could cherry-pick the book sections to personalise it to yourself.
    cheers, K

    Edited to add: Dottymo must have been typing at the same time as me lol

    There's one on the website of mystery author Kate Carlisle, and it's a free pattern. Go to www.katecarlisle.com and click on the Secret Room.

    Block Central has several paper-pieced patterns for the book blocks. There are around 5 or 6 different versions. These are the patterns I used. Hope it helps .... if I am not too late to the game.

    Sorry, I posted this in the wrong place.
