    A Bookcase Wallhanging & A Potholder

    Just finished this wallhanging and potholder as a surprise for an online friend who loves books, and has a "thing" for llamas, cats, and sock monkeys! I'll drop it in the mail to her tomorrow. It was from a Crafty-Pay-It-Forward challenge on Facebook, so she knows I'm sending something, but doesn't know when or what it is. Hope she likes them!

    All of the books except one are classics. The other book is called "Llama Adventures", since she likes llamas. First time I've made a bookcase quilt. It was fun!

    Your bookcase quilt is wonderful. I have been wanting to do one of these.
    Did you embroider the names on the books before assembling the quilt or after?

    I did all the embroidery beforehand.

    I am always looking for ideas to personalize quilts for my friends. Yours is a terrific idea. I had never seen or heard of a bookcase quilt. Thank you so much for sharing the picture of one. Now that I have an embroidery machine, I will try to make one, too.

    Your quilt is awesome. I want to make one for one of my friends that has a whole room full of bookcases and books. Did you have a pattern or did you just wing it? I am no good at winging....LOL

    Wonderful bookcase quilt and a great idea for a pay forward! I like how you did the titles and spines
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
