Aren't you enjoying all of these great mystery projects! Today is my turn! Here is the list of others who are sharing today:
Just Quilt It (You are here.)
I was an avid reader growing up, and I loved the Nancy Drew mysteries. I knew I wanted to be part of this hop when it was first announced. My project is a notebook cover, and I loved the way it turned out!
I purchased a charm pack for this project. I sewed 2 together to make the row of books at the top. I used the exploding pineapple pattern for the bottom--we had just learned this technique at my quilt club.
Inside, I added a pocket, using the book print, and included a pen and, of course, a magnifying glass for Nancy Drew adventures.
I found a nice black in my stash to use for the back, and used FMQ similar to what I did on the inside cover.
What is the clue?
I wanted to have a clue in my project, but did you find it? I made this notebook cover for my daughter. She has her own library collection and is working on a Master's in Library Science at the University of IL.
This is my daughter at Christmas.
If you look closely, you can find her name in the magnifying glasses in all 4 yellow triangles.
Her name is Anna.
I had lots of fun doing this project. Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog! I hope you will come back. Now, for a give-away. I have a Thimbleberries pattern to give away. It is entitled "Holiday Bouquet". Please leave a comment, be a follower if you like, and make certain that I have your e-mail so that I can notify you.
Enjoy the rest of the hop! It has certainly contained lots of interesting mysteries!
