    I couldn't have said it any better!! I would love making a quilt like this!! You have done such a beautiful job. I have a nice wall in our office/library that I could hang it on. How big is it? Thanks for sharing!

    Really nice! On my to do list but not close enough to the top!
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    Thank you for your kind comments. Jillnjo, the size of mine is 43" x 60", but it can easily be adjusted by adding another shelf or by taking one away and when you "build" your shelves, you either start or end with books standing up, so that you can use that side to get the right length, either by adding another book or slicing a book in half. :-)

    I like your wall hanging and all the interesting little items you have included in it. Do I see a dusty cobweb hanging in the corner on the right side????? If so, that is a homey touch as I get them in my book cases.

    From a retired librarian: Fantastic. But you must de-spider more often! Oh, that's a thought. Oh NO! Every corner in my sewing room has a web! On the other hand, maybe your quilt is simply toooo realistic!
