    Bookshelf quilt

    Just finished this quilt top..It was a bugger to do! Did one book at a time and it took forever! What you think??

    Very nice! I haven't seen that pattern/style before. I am making one for my son for Christmas, but the pattern I have is a bookcase with divided shelves.

    Oh, I LOVE it! It looks SO real! I'll bet this pattern would work up very quickly if it were paper pieced.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    What I think is that DH & I are both bookworms & this sure would look marvelous in our living room... LOL! I love this! I'd never seen this type of quilt (had heard of them, just never saw one) & I just love, love, love it! Great job!

    I Love this design. I saw one in our local library and really liked it. I may have to get around to doing one one of these days. You did a great job.

    I think it looks fantastic! I love your fabric choices. It would make me want to read any of those books.

    Great job - it looks like you could just reach in and grab one of those books. Well done

    I love it! I'm making one for my DGS and his fiance for a wedding quilt. They are both "bookish." Did you have a pattern? I can't seem to find one.
