    There is a FOL book store that my family helps out at(we supply the books) and I was thinking about making some bookcovers to sell there, with the presidents permission.
    So.... Where are some good book cover patterns, that are a quilt design or a book or something?
    Thanks
    Emily

    Years ago I worked at a little family used book store......romance novels are some of the biggest sellers! She made real cute book covers, no batting or anything, they would be even cuter quilted :D Measure front, back and spline, add another piece to front and back to slip the cover in between the fabrics and add ties. Real simple and they sold really well. Have you found someone to help you learn to sew/quilt? Wish you were closer.

    Hi Emily, I found a nice pattern online. It's only $5. Here is the link:

    Are you by chance homeschooled? You remind me of my oldest dd, also named Emily. She is 16 and we homeschool. :D
