    I am having so much fun making kindle covers and still procrastinating the star quilt - I am going to start it tomorrow for sure. Well maybe today after my nap.

    Cute! And I know exactly what you mean by making a lot of little stuff to put off making the 'big' project. I have been doing it myself lately, but have finally started drawing out the BIG ONE haha, and have it on my design wall to make me get serious about starting it....Get on it girl, can't wait to see it:)

    This is a great idea. Do you line them with flannel or cotton?

    I line then with silky soft drapery fabric stabilized with woven interfacing. I think the inside should be very soft to protect the kindle, nook, or e-reader surface. I think flannel would be good and that bamboo fabric - or minky fur.

    Now I feel pressure - I like how the act of beginning just brings it all together. I only have to eliminate colors. I will most likely end up doing 3 or 4 quilts instead of 1 which is part of my procrastination.

    That is what I was thinking that the inside would have to help protect the screen. Yours are very pretty too.

    I looked up the kindle size and made it a tad bigger so it would slide in easily. The size I found is 7.5 by 4.8. I think I added a little over an inch, 3/8" seam allowance.
    I am going to try putting the zipper at the top instead of the side.
    Have fun!
