Deb, there are others on here that are experts in how to quilt your bookcase quilt. 

Here's just my thoughts. What if you did tight squiggles in the open spaces (black areas). The books could be stitch in the ditch. Or, what I did on some of my Harry Potter books, I free motion "wrote" titles on some the books.

That is a really really awesome quilt by the way.

Deb I would straight line the bookcase. It's lovely.

Ok here's the unveiling of the finished Helicopter Quilt.

Mamags , great job!!  Got your next project thought up yet?!! :)

love the thought of stripling in the black area and stitch in the ditch for the books ... Now just the borders left to think about!

🌺 You know you are a quilter when the only scraps under your table are fabric.🐾

Donna, the helicopter quilt turned out grand.   Got to hand it to you though,  You certainly get things done quickly...  I guess that I just work at a much slower pace.... Ginny

Thanks everyone.

Jen love yours.

Gin and I thought it was taken me forever.

Deb yes now I am working on the Notting Hill Quilt from Craftsy that is what the pregnant mommy my daughter wants.  Then I have about 8 others lines up after that.  

I have to keep busy or I will go batty, plus its almost canning season & I will be busy with that.  

My time chart is Fall - Canning, Winter - Knitting & Crochetting, Spring/Summer Quilting

Hi to Everyone!  I haven't posted in a really long time, but have been "lurking" in-between all the quilting and other stuff going on.  Just LOVE LOVE LOVE everyone's work and photos (nature pics, too!)!!!!  You are all so inspiring!  Have been keeping everyone with health/family issues in prayer.  I've been able to get 15 projects done, 2 additional quilts ready for quilting/binding, Quilt of Valor BOM in progress, and completed the first section of Jacqueline De Jongue's Joy quilt - all since just before Easter!!! Had the family and friends here for Easter dinner, then left the next day and drove 21 hrs to FL.  Wound up spending 3 weeks (a week longer than expected) but we found and purchased our "winter home" - a water home.  We found a 40' trawler that we just love.  NO MORE SNOW!!! YAY!!!!  LOL !

Have lots of pics to share, so I'll put them in separate posts due to forum constraints.  To start off, look what my DH made for me today!! There are 2 more shelves below what shows in the picture, but I have to get more dowels.  I am so tickled to be able to organize my threads and bobbins better :)

I've been wanting to do a Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt, but after finishing this Tokyo Subway Map quilt...I'm not so sure - LOL!  This quilt took over 1600 2" squares. The back was my first foray into raw edge applique.  I started collecting the 2" squares last year.  Feels good to finally get it done :)

 

Here's the back:
