Little gems

I've been wanting to make a quilted book cover for a while and an opportunity has presented itself in the form of Bookwrap Gems, a project in support of The Quilters' Guild Museum and Gallery in York. The project is being run by the Contemporary Quilt group and invites people to make a book wrap or cover to be  offered as tombola prizes at the Festival of Quilts 2013.

Using these gorgeous batik fabrics, I have paper pieced some little one inch hexagons with which I will create the book wrap. Lots of nice hand piecing to look forward to on holiday in the Lake District next week!

Work in progress - batik  hexagons for Bookwrap Gem
