A finish, but still a WIP

I finished! Well almost.  I have the quilt top all pieced. The baste, quilting, and binding will be put on hold for awhile until I figure out how to get my machine to FMQ again.  Maybe I should just get a new machine. =) 

Here it is.  My finished book quilt top.  I used this tutorial from Happy Quilting over at the Moda Bake
Shop.  I love it!  And it stopped raining just in time for the pictures.

I am linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.  Come check it out.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Very cute! Love all the book quilts that are popping up.

  2. Oh my, that quilt is ridiculously cute! Nice job.

  3. what a teaser! will the back fill in the phrase at all? this would be great two sided with an eye spy on the back or just a collage of character prints. hope you get your machine operating soon so you can get a full finish on it!

  4. Your Once Upon a Time quilt gives me an idea... I used to read to my grand daughter and I'd always have an afghan that was made for me as a baby gift for my first child and I have saved it since for all the grand kids...just a baby size. But she'd call it the reading blanket to cover her legs on the "reading couch". I need to make a quilt with the books like yours and make a new reading blanket since they don't come to my house anymore! I can take it with me to their house with a few books in a "nanny bag". Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. So very fun -- my daughter loves books so I'm pretty sure we're going to have something like this in the works some day very soon :)

  6. It looks great! I recently did this quilt but used solids and did a Harry Potter quote for the words. It was awesome. I love yours because it looks so much like the original. Melissa is really quite a talented designer.
