Booking It, Again
Topic: Books

Remember how I said that if I ever got a coupon to make another free book with Shutterfly I would sure do it? Well, I got one of those coupons and finally decided what to make a book about.

I chose to document the 25 baby quilts I made for a donation project at church, where our quilt group meets.

For the cover  I used an image of a quilt with an over-all random arrangement of scrappy squares. A title in white print showed up best.


This is an 8x8 hardbound book with black pages to show contrast with the colorful quilts. The first page groups together 4 strip-pieced quilts with the same scraps and layouts.


Since the book only has 20 pages and I had 25 quilts I made layouts that combined similar projects. Since I've showed these all before on multiple platforms I'll just show the layouts instead of commenting on each one.






I kept changing the layout of the pages to keep the look fresh.




I also included the quilts that are on the front and back covers so I could say more about them.


By combining like quilts throughout, I ended up with an extra page at the end. I used it to summarize the project.


The back cover has room for a small photo and text. I included the photo of the small grid quilt and added author and imprint notations.


I love that it has the barcode on the back cover though I've never scanned it to see what it links to.

I had one more coupon for a free book which I have submitted but not yet received back in the mail. Soon, I promise.
