Today I had fun with my friend Sue, sewing a project for me. I had an idea and it will grow as I work on it so this blog post will continue on as I find time each month to work on it. This will be my Connect Threadz sew-in project for quite a few months to come.

When I first started quilting, I made quilts for all my children. They got quilts for their cribs when they were young. Then as they grew up I made quilts for their beds. As new quilts replaced older ones, the older ones were then handed on to others.

Fabric Book - Phantom of the Opera

I made this fabric book for a dear friend a few years ago after we had been to see "The Phantom of the Opera" together. I have used many embellishments from buttons and beads to paper and clay to re-enact this movie. Fabric books are a fun way to keep memories of trips, celebrations and all sorts of different occasions.
