    Those are some of the prettiest books I've ever seen.

    Lovely book shelf quilt! I just finished a 3 shelfer wall hanging for my oldest son who is a writer. I took pictures of some of his books and copied them onto fabric. It is off to be quilted. I love your white background - mine is black with the woodgrain batik book case - and your books are so pretty. I might get nerve to post mine. Thanks for sharing yours.

    Well, your labour is our delight! It is a wonderful quilt (and I'm not saying that because I was a librarian for years).

    But your skill and diligence paid off. You created a beautiful quilt to be cherished much longer than the favorite books it reminds you of.

    Very nice quilt and nice looking dog too.
    Quilting is an addiction that you can be proud of and enjoy.
