This is my first quilt ever made, My niece was moving to Florida and I wanted her to take a piece of her family with her. She loves to read never can I remember a time she didn't have a book in her hands or be telling me about one, also photos were added and on some of the books are titels of  books and quotes.on the other side at her going away/birthday party we had friends and family sign the quilt and put the supporting words for her to take with her.

Awesome!  At first glance it looks exactly like a real bookcase.  May my first quilts look half as good.

Sarah, what a wonderful quilt! I love how the photos add to the image of a bookcase. Such a nice idea!

I didn't use a templet just went and got lots of 2 inch strips of fabric and then cut them different sizes I sewed a black strip to the top and then put them all together in different sections about 5-7 books then I was able to place them and move them around before quilting them all together to make the perfect look. :)  tired to look online for some different looks but in the end I just did my own this is the size of a twin bed.
