Chevron Journal Cover

Chevron Journal Cover

Ta da!  Yes, I like it so much I have to say "Ta da!"  And it's for you, Miss Anne.  I won't try to hide it.  Please say you like it?

This scrappy covered journal was an extension of that wall art I made last summer.  I have a little baggie filled with 1/2" x 5" pieces, where I put teeny strips of my favorite fabrics when I can't bear to toss them.

lots of Anna Maria Horner round these parts

So, this journal cover (general tutorial here) is covered front and back with raw edge applique.  And, gee, there is a lot of Anna Maria Horner round these parts.  Good. ness.

Chevron cover w/my fav pincushion

In fact my first image was taken right on my worktop where that fantabulous pin cushion (from Anna's first book, Seams to Me) gets nigh constant use.  It's my only and favorite pin cushion, received once upon a time in my first swap.  I'm still in awe of my luck!

(There I remembered to give you the low-down on the pincushion. I always, always forget!)

bits and bobs inside

And inside there are a few more bits and bobs of Anna Maria Horner fabrics, as well as a little "Stitched" tag to finish her off.  

I count myself blessed to have "assignments" like these - small works with lots of freedom to be gifted to people who I know will appreciate them.  Almost doesn't get better than that.  Thanks, campers!

p.s.  Oh, did you notice the AQUA table top?  Hmm... yes.  Do come back tomorrow...

  2. I love the raw edge chevrons!! It's so different! I might have to try something like this, but try to find an iPad case tutorial.

  3. I did notice the aqua,it is just about my favorite colour, and I have a box of tiny scraps, I can not bear to part with a single one. I have just put all the selvages from my latest quilt into a Ziploc bag.

  4. I love it! It is so hard to throw away those tiny pieces of pretty fabrics, I'm glad you find a good way to use them. Love the aqua table by the way.

  8. I'm sure wishing now my machine had not broken down but even so I got too caught up with packing and preparing to move to be able to complete the projects. Hopefully I will get to be a camper for your next course so I can try to earn a goodie! Love it!

  10. So amazing. Definitely on my to try list.
    Odd question though... Where do you get your stitched tags? We were discussing them today but I don't want to order a heap and them not be up to scratch.
    I'm guessing with your incredible taste I wouldn't be disappointed with your suppliers.
    Thanks
