Treasures Fabric Book


















Just some eye candy for all of you. Awhile back, I won a blog contest that Pokey Bolton had on the Quilting Arts blog. She said to let her know if I ever did anything with the screened fabric. Well, I did. I made a treasures fabric book out of it. I took half of the fabric she gave me and made a book out of it. I thought about it for awhile. I was going to make a quilt but I wasn't groovin' on that idea. It started out as a kind of crazy quilt but I went a bit further and made pocket purses out of the quilted material. I still need to paint the wood flower, but it is pretty much done. The pockets are full of little treasures that I really like. The book is so stuffed that it does not sit flat. Unless Pokey takes the treasures out, she will have a little book that stands up on its own! I thought it would be nice to send it to her since she was nice enough to have the blog giveaway. I will hoard the other half for a special project for myself. Not sure what will be yet. I decided to not embellish it very much so you would see the great painted backgrounds from the stencils Pokey used.
Comments welcome.
