Kelli and I have been out and about at retreats and speaking events from time to time and each we go we see someone with a quilt book that has a spiral binding. We’ve always intended on doing it but never quite made it happen.
Living where we live we’re about a half hour from everywhere and an hour from a big office store. The local shops don’t do this so that means a trip to a bigger store in a bigger town.
A bit ago we went to the family picnic we go to each year near Forest City, Iowa. I had the great idea of getting our books done then. We could drop them off at Staples in Mason City and pick them up on our way back through town and that’s what we did.
The hardest part was deciding which books to have bound. It was going to cost $7 a piece so we took our favorite books only…..
Here are mine.
Yep…all of Bonnie Hunter books and our book Country Girl Modern.
That’s my favorite books that I know I will be regularly sewing from. Yes I have other favorites like my Country Threads ones and a couple others but right now everything on my UFO list or from wish list is Bonnie Hunter quilts…what can say? I’m a scrap lover!!
We are completely impressed with the process of cutting the binding and adding the coils. We were originally worried that we’d loose part of the book but we didn’t. We’ll be doing this again the next we get a “new favorite” book.
