Plans for a Bookcase Quilt

Linking up with Elm Street Quilts

As part of my long term goals I’ve always wanted to make a bookcase quilt but so far haven’t started one.  Last month I saw someone – BluePip Designs  on the June link up making one and it spurred me on to start. I am using the Harry Potter basic paper piecing, but not a Harry Potter one. I’ll put my own things in.

My plans so far!


I think 20 blocks – they are 10″ finished will be enough. I want to make it into a wall hanging. Thats the plan at the moment. Size could change!  I have some fabric I bought in a kit which I am not making and it is perfect for this. I’ll add bits and pieces as I go.

My goal for July is to make 10 of the blocks. Just the piecing – when I get enough blocks I’ll see then what I’ll add to the bookcase. Like a cat playing with pencils which is quite cute and I found in a pattern on Craftsy.

Reading is my first hobby! You can see that over at the Book Date. I only came to quilt making through reading Emilie Richards Shenandoah Album series!
