Hey guys! I have a fun tutorial for you today that I think you will love! A few weeks ago I put up a sewing tutorial on making your own journal or book cover, and today I have another one that involves more quilting and cuteness! This is another great project to get you started quilting, and it’s a super fun way to make those ugly text books and composition notebooks much more exciting!


12” x 17” Backing fabric**
12” x 17” Batting**
Several fabric squares with the same dimensions. I’m using 2.5” squares from the mini-charm Gooseberry line by Moda.
Soft measuring tape
Spray Basting (I like 505 Temporary Fabric Adhesive)
Rotary trimmer (I like this one: Olfa Splash 45mm Rotary Cutter)
Self Healing Cutting Mat (I have a Fiskars 18”x24” light blue mat)
Clear Acrylic Ruler
Coordinating thread (I’m using Aurifil 50wt natural white)
Straight pins (I like glass head straight pins)
Sewing machine
** If you are measuring for your own book add 2” to the height and 2” to the width of your book so that you will have some leeway in trimming. Later you will trim your finished quilted piece 1” taller than the height of your book, and 1.5” wider than the width.

I hope you enjoy it! Make sure to tag me if you use this tutorial to create your own projects!

I hope this helps inspire and encourage you all in your homeschooling journey as well!
