Favorites from Let's Book It!

  Saying good bye to major motivating force in my last couple of years of quilting is not easy.  Let's Book It has been fun and liberating to participate in each month.....many thanks to the  scrappiest quilter who devised and lead us each month,  Sharon at Vroomans Quilts.

  So here are my favorites from the monthly event.  It was so difficult to settle on these few projects!


  • The Charming mini and the larger Charming Bricks version just propelled me to look for a project to work on each month.  
  • A bargello I called Catching the Light  came together when I found the border fabric.
  • A table runner, scrappy and lots of plumes used in the border.  This is a  small version of the  full size quilt below.
  • A welcome banner of a scrappy Pineapple....fun to make, and I love the topknot Dresden plate pieced for the leaves.  
  • Where My Feet May Fall took several months to make, but the border of blended floral fabrics turned out exactly as I wanted.
  • Plume Crazy was gifted to a friend in much need of comfort.  My favorite quilt of 2015.
  • Trippin' Thru the Flowers......I use this as my blog banner.  The pattern is Many Scrappy Trips from Bonnie Hunter.


    The Finale is the Pineapple Blossom top.  I began this in September as my Let's Book It project....here is the post.  I began with a test block, then a set of four, and finally a top with borders.  Thanks to Let's Book It I was motivated to get this together by month's end.   The quilting will wait until the new year until the arm strength returns after the carpel tunnel surgery.  

    Things go on, time marching forward to new motivations.  There are several sew alongs, and monthly challenges around......one of them will probably fit me and become a new motivator.
    I just wanted to give special tribute to this idea that kept me moving  and stitching.  It has been great.  Thanks, Sharon!✂
Happy stitching.

  1. Each project is more lovely than the one before, and all in your distinctive style. I've loved following various bloggers' Book It projects even though I never formally participated. Sharon is such a prolific scrappy quilter, and the perfect person to inspire all of us to value all the scraps that find their way into our fabric bins.

  5. I'm so glad you stuck with Pineapple Blossoms. I think it is now my favorite of all your projects, although the watercolor scrappy trips is running neck and neck. I have no doubt that you will find a new source of motivation and will keep on inspiring the rest of us.

  8. You joined in the fun many times. I seldom follow a pattern, so, I didn't get to join in very often, but, loved seeing what everyone else was doing.
