More Fabric Books & Annabelle Update

I've finished a couple more fabric books.
This ABC Primer by Wilmington prints is
a cute old fashioned school primer.  It has 
sweet  illustrations for the different letters.
Here's a link to a prior post on how
to make a panel book.
Fabric Books 
The Hungry Animals Alphabet Book designed
 by Janet Wecker Frisch for Quilt Treasures is 
one of my favorites.  I made this particular book
 and a quilt for my great niece when she was born.  
This set is a special request, I've just sent the 
matching baby quilt off to the quilter.  I'll post a 
photo when I get it finished. 
How many objects that start with a 
C and D can you find?
These are the pages of the Annabelle book 
pinned and ready to be sewn together.

All the pages sewn, pressed and 
trimmed at the corners.
I turned the pages right side out
and sewed the opening closed
with the ladder stitch.  While I am
 waiting for the machine embroidery to 
be done, I am hand quilting each page.
It feels good to make a dent in the
"projects to do someday" pile! 
Now..........I'm off  to finish
decorating the Christmas tree.


  1. Oh I love these! Did you do anything to the fabric to make them appear worn and aged? They look so sweetly antiquated.

  2. The fabric panel came that way. The colors are soft and old looking. So easy!

  3. they are great little books. they do look old too.

  4. Sherri, you may have made more than a dent...lots of beautiful work here! I really love your little books, all of them, but The Hungry Animals Alphabet Book is my f......can't pick favorites, can I? So is this what you have been working on while the winter storm did its thing in your woods? We were out of power for 32 long spoiled aren't we?


Leave me a message. I would love to hear from you.
