Block #3 - I chose this book cover to represent the Elm Creek Quilt Series by Jennifer Chiaverini. The cover was illustrated by Lauren Simonetti. I so enjoy these books! My husband and I have been traveling the last month (Denver and Alaska) and am now back and sewing. I had the quilt block border and dark blue fabric, as well as the ribbon, in my stash (I love when that works out!) The fabric for the tree I saw at a quilt store in Denali, Alaska. I then added the hand embroidery. I was quite happy with how it turned out. I am in the process of re-reading "A Prayer for Owen Meany" by John Irving as my choice for a book that makes me laugh that was already part of the set of books I pulled for the Patchwork and Prose BOM. I am waiting for inspiration to strike for my custom cover! After being gone for a month, I am looking forward to seeing all the wonderful book covers that I know were created while I was gone. Love this group!
