One block down, 55 to go

In my Penguin Books quilt for my sister Julia.  I started with this book because it's her favourite author and her favourite colour.  Amongst the titles on the quilt there will be some classics, some of her favourites, one of my husband's favourites, one of her partner's favourites, a few funny titles of genuine books, including "How to catch a cannonball" and "Knitted Historical Figures".
I printed the top and bottom logos on the books onto fabric in the same way as the book titles, as described in my previous post, attached them to the fabric with Steam-a-Seam Lite and then added a simple black running stitch around the edge.

  4. I would really like to knit historical figures, must try and track that book down! These blocks are so effective, this is going to be a really special quilt. Still haven't looked for more penguin titles yet, do you still need anymore?
