I have wanted to do this for such a long time, make a cover for the journals I use to write my books, the daily log I start every year on my birthday, and the others I use to keep track of the books I’ve read, the marketing I’ve done, etc. etc.

Yeah, a lot of writing going on over here.

So when a member of my quilt guild was ready to share a pattern for these great journal covers, I was there!

There were about 20 of us at a workshop last Friday night, sewing machines at the ready, fabric in hand, and we were off.

Part of the technique we used will be familiar to folks who quilt because it’s flip-and-sew. Each cover has a layer of Peltex 70 inside to keep it sturdy, and the lining can be that fabric that you wish you’d never added to your stash.

This cover was done from start to finish in just over two hours.

So much fun.

More to come, that’s for sure.
