Remember September

My first go at one of the ereader covers thats being collected for Remember September is the following Kindle cover. I followed this tutorial and tweaked it to my liking /stash.
I pulled out 3 coordinating fabrics I had, cut 2.5in by WOF and placed out 5 strips to be used.
I also QAYG (quilt as you go) so that the inside was also quilted and its a plus that it helped with the time of project start to finish.  Under an hour.
On the plus side, I got to work on the proper way to bind, maybe after a few more of these I'll try it out on a quilt.

Now I gave a Pillowcase a shot too, my Mac was being occupied by my little Miss watching Pocahontas (I actually started it, she came to watch with me :-P )
So I didn't have a tut or pattern available, I improvised, I pulled out a clean standard pillowcase I owned and made one by looking and measuring it, I was a few inches short of the WaterLily print so my top border is a few inches wider than most.


  1. Love how you adapted the pattern and did quilt as you go! You rock lady!

    1. Thanks! I'm trying to learn it all this year :-)

  2. Very cute cover! I love green!

  3. Beautiful e-book holder and pillowcase! How neat that you just looked at one you had and made it! Thanks for sharing.
