One more............

I only got one more journal cover made yesterday.  I couldn't decide how to quilt it and then I decided on wavy overlapping lines.









The cover can be put on either way with horizontal or vertical stripes on the front.







I spent some time writing a blog post for Stash Manicure, where I was invited to be a guest blogger.  My post will be there tomorrow (Thursday), so be sure to check it out.

I am loving your quilted journal covers! I made some one year for the granddaughters using this pattern here, recently I saw this pattern, but haven't tried it yet. Yours are so colorful, like everything on your blog, love it!

I really like the choice of fabrics, esp. the outside batik fabric. The wavy quilting..... that is perfect for this piece!

Should I send you my address for this one?? :)

I was *wondering* when I'd see you there. *S* I'll click on that first thing while I have my coffee.

Nice journal cover. I'm just too lazy to do those. :(

I can see you have been having fun making your journal covers. I viewed them all at once this morning and each one has a personality of it's own. I do not have a favorite as they all are wonderful.

Cute cover, Wanda. I love your blog, I'm just too much of a lurker. However, when I looked at your weather and saw 20! OMG, I just had to write some sympathy for you. I'm in San Diego and we are freezing at 68. LOL

I'm just getting caught up on some blog reading, wow your book covers are gorgeous, as usual. I was thinking about you the other day when I looked at a couple of books that need covers. I haven't got the mojo for these right now, but your posts have got me excited about them again. Thanks for sharing

Great idea to have a "reversible" journal cover.

I love the way you use COLOR in your quilts! They are exciting, make me smile and say WOW. You are a very talented lady. Thank you for your blog, for sharing your thoughts and posting pictures of your beautiful quilts and projects.

Wanda, my Christmas cactus does not even have one blossom this year. The poor thing hasn't grown at all this year. Maybe I do not give it enough attention.
