    I want ot make a small wedding album cover. I have never done this before. I want to make the cover like a friend of mine made for my bible. Just something quick, easy and plain I guess.
    Would this material look ok? It is a silvery/gray color with white. I really liked it when I seen it. Now that I went and bought it I am not sure. I only have a fat quarter of this other one that I bought because that is all that I saw of this one. I think I like the fat quarter better. What is your opions? Would you use this or change the color or patterns all together? It looks silverish to me.

    This one is silverish or gray and white.

    I like the gray and white---------maybe add a bit of eyelet lace? Or a picture frame for a wedding photo or for the announcment? That's what I've done with album covers

    Depends on the size of the wedding album. The ones that I made in the past were made of 3 ring notebooks and a FQ just will not be enough. I use to use about 1 yd (depending on the width) for the ones I made. They also had a photo pocket on the front. I don't have a picture handy, but if you PM me I'll dig some out.

    I choose the silver and gray. But that is just my opinion.
