    I love the detail you put in the book binding and the variation in the fonts. Very cool.

    Oh my goodness that is the most well done bookcase quilt I have EVER seen. You did a fantastic job!!! No other one I've seen has titles on the books. I absolutely love it!! Stand up and take a bow.

    Wow, thank you, Anne! I really appreciate it. It's the first one I've ever made, and I just kind of "winged it", but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Thanks again!

    Are the little books in the lower right hand corner short stories?

    This is a delightful quilt with some great titles.
    Thanks for sharing.
