    I made this about two years ago. The planning and sewing was great fun and I could incorporate many of the fancy stitches of my new sewing machine.

    Edited to add that my fancy computer is so smart, that it automatically stands pictures the right way round, pity it doesn't copy them the same way into this forum.

    I love your quilt - what a clever use of stitches to illustrate the book bindings. My two favorite things -quilts and books. Good job.

    That's hilarious. I thought it was an abstract when it was on its side. I didnt see books.

    I love quilts and books, too. But I would have to work a cat and/or a dog in there, too!

    Thank you everyone! The idea sort of popped into my head when my flat was renovated and they replaced my beautiful but albeit not very burglar-proof bull-glass appartment door with a solid white door.

    What neat stitch details. Looks like you put a lot of time into these and it shows.
