My Favorite Project

Wow! This was so much fun; it's my favorite project so far. It combines my love of reading and my love of sewing. You may remember that I made a similar one last summer for my nephew. I've wanted to make one to keep ever since.
It was so cool to pick out all different fabrics for the books. Here are the music books.

The pet books, the sewing books, another look at the music books, and of course the cat, who is much better behaved than our cat.


The fish bowl, star books, and even a frog book.



Moon books, and even one about a Husky.




Leaf books, gardening books, and bird books.
This delightful project was inspired by Jennifer Chiaverini's quilt "Heather's Library" found on her website under "gallery" at http://www.elmcreek.net/. She gave me permission to borrow her idea, and I added many of my own touches. Do you see the mouse?
