Mini Bookshelf Quilt with Selvages


June Calender of Cape Cod, MA was inspired by the recent bookshelf selvage quilts shown here and she made this charming little (6" x 7") quilt for a swap. June liked doing a project that she could finish in a few hours, including the hand quilting. Most of her quilts are pretty big. June used to be a member of my guild, Empire Quilters in New York City. We miss her.

Cute. It is nice to do something small for a change. I have been learning to make letters, one a day...Quilts don't always have to fit beds!

June does fantastic things on that sewing machine. She says
she can't paint, well she certainly painted a wonderful piece with her talent. I just love it.

What a great idea to use the selvage titles for the books. I'm saving this idea!
