Books, books, books – we have too many, but this weekend I made three more. We have books piled up in corners. I love books. We even owned a bookstore a long time ago.
These are small 4-inch fabric blocks so they don’t take up much room.
This project started when Joan Samuelson
sent me a little sketch for a possible paper pieced block for my ongoing block-a-day series.
Her sketch looked easy enough, but it wasn’t. I tried all sorts of maneuvers to make a single foundation for piecing a little book. Finally, I came up with a two-foundation block that calls for some gluing.
If you have some fabric with words printed on it you can use it for the spines of your books. I printed some words on fabric to use for my blocks.
Here is the two part foundation for a paper pieced small book. Click on the graphic to print it out for your own personal use.
Here is a picture of the gluing:
