Journal, agenda, book covers

I use an agenda, write a journal and, as  a I am a patchwork freak, I have to cover them with lovely fabric. 
These book covers are great presents, especially around the new year. They are very good for using scraps, and getting experience in sewing tiny pieces. 
One of my friends is using this one.

My own agenda is covered in fuchsia/turquoise

Love the colours of this one too !

Time to make some more, but first I have to finish my sample placemat for the English paper piecing workshop I am going to do. Sew some whales for the daughter of a friend for the nursery, that go together with the baby quilt I made for her. And work on the houses I need to make for a Greek QAL. Work enough! Time to start!


  1. lovely, the fabric you chose are perfect!

  2. You have been so busy Ada! Your colourful agendas are very beautiful and all your patchwork in previous posts as well.So talented you are...
    Have a happy weekend!

  5. Great colour combinations and your covers must make mundane notebooks look very special

  6. Lieve Ada,
    Je bent een heerlijke bezige bij en dit lijkt ook nog gezellig en mooi ook.

  7. Covering agdendas is a nice thing, especially when you teach quilting. Everyone can see what other we can make ....

  8. Hello Ada, I love finding new ways to use up my scraps. It is a great way to make gifts and spread a little love, without breaking the bank :) Everyone loves getting a handmade gift from the heart:) I am your newest follower. Please come visit my blog. I would consider it an honor to have you follow me back.
    Have a lovely weekend and keep quilting.
    Your new blogging sister,
