Quilted Notebook Cover

This was a wonderfully fun make!  It's a slip on quilted notebook cover.  I confess to being inspired by Katy's covers but I wanted to put my own spin on it.

I used some spotty cotton, bamboo wadding and lining fabric.  I cut them a little taller than the notebook and a lot longer, pinned the sandwich and free motion quilted it with rainbow variegated thread.  I then located some plain cotton and chain stitched a name on to it with rayon variegated embroidery floss.  I stitched that onto the cover, folded it so it fitted and added bias binding tot he top and bottom.

It ended up being one of my favourite things and I have plans to make more of them!
