Book covers with Free Motion Mavericks

Welcome to the Free Motion Mavericks (week 248) link up.

New book covers to be FMQ

These aren't fabric covers for books, but rather two foundation paper-pieced book blocks with FMQ covers 😊

I was able to piece these two Tall Tales book blocks during my holidays. Next comes the appliquĂ© on one of them and some Free Motion Quilted (FMQ) flowers on the other. I'm sure that both will end up being heavily quilted by the time I'm finished!

I made these blocks through the Summer Book Club Quilt-Along. I've only finished two books to date but you may want to take a look at the awesome quilts that are being done in the Quilt-Along (see the Instagram link is Related links).

What I learned
  • Making these two blocks was much easier and smoother than making the first batch - practice does help!
  • I only remembered to use the Extended-Border Binding technique for the second book. I'll be doing a traditional binding for the first one. I'm looking forward to comparing the results of the two.

  1. Book covers, that would be a wonderful stocking stuffer for the book worm.

  2. When I first looked at your book blocks, I thought I was looking at a fabric book cover. Fantastic!

  3. I love the book covers idea. There are soooo many ways to play with that. Thanks so much for the feature! :)
