    They are 5" blocks. I may have to piece some of them together so it's not too big!

    I did that one time, several years ago and can't find a picture if I even took one then. Think I used a sashing when I did it. Just lay it out and be inspired!!! Let us see it when you're finished. Jan

    I'm really poor at getting on the board lately (harvest season in full force!), but this post has been awesome! I have a couple of fabric book panels and I have lots of ideas now! Thanks to all of you!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!

    With or without the cornerstone stars, IMHO, Polly has the right idea. You may not need that many filler blocks. The ones I've made only needed one after page 2 and one before the last page. Do a layout and see what looks good to you. Unless the book fabric is terribly flimsy, it should not need any special backing to strengthen it. If it does, selectlight weight iron on interfacing.

    PS. Generally quilters love to help. Don't get in a twist about asking. I'd have become a competant quilter much faster if I had been ready to ask for help.
