Quilters Keepsakes.

I have been making three Quilters Keepsakes books and this is the first of the trio.

I love making these. You'll find it in my Etsy shop soon.

This is entitled 'And sew to Quilt', it is a soft fabric book with a canvas base and lovely fabrics in shades of blue. It has a ticking spine and lots of lace trims.

I have added some inspiring texts on some of the pages and pockets to hold those essential supplies.

                        More pockets and pretty trims.
                             Little packs of lace and hand dyed crinkled ribbon.
                               The back cover has a patchwork heart.
A lovely gift for a Quilter who can continue to add her own special touches to the book.

Finally, I am over the moon to have been chosen to teach at the Knittng and Stitching show at Alexandra Palace in London next October. It's so exciting!!

I'm finishing the other two books over the weekend so I'll show them to you soon.

Have a great day,
xox Angela.

Absolutely gorgeous, Angela! Your book is not only an eye-candy but practical as well. I love the striped and checked fabrics combined with all the pretty laces, sweet embellishments and texts.
Congratulations on beeing chosen to teach at the show! That's very exciting and I'm happy for you!
Have a great afternoon :-)!
Hugs to you,

So beautiful!! I want to make some books. Unfortunately, all mine will have to be paper until I learn to use my sewing machine!
