December embroidery club project

This month's embroidery club project at Threads of Time in Danville was a cover for a neat recipe/photo album.  We got to choose our background fabric, and thread colours.  Our intrepid leader Ila created the pattern for us!
It was super easy to do.  I may get some more of the albums and change up a bit of the design for use as a photo album, rather than recipes.
Here's some more of the quilting on my disappearing nine patch.  I just need to get more of the black fabric for the binding.  I was going to make it scrappy, but it is speaking to me that it wants a black binding.  Gotta listen to the quilt when it talks!


  1. Nice quilting, Maggie. I was looking at those books online. They look great. I may have to buy them.

    That's a clever idea on the album cover. Would love to hear more about it sometime!

  2. Lovely cover and the variegated thread on the black looks fabulous!

  3. you just GOT to listen when a quilt talks !! x
