Bookwrap gems ...

This wrap is for a catalogue for an exhibition ‘Colourwash’ by Deirdre Amsden that was part of the Inaugural Festival of Quilts, August 2003. The wrap measures 22cm x 21.5cm and is hand-quilted patchwork.

Contemporary Quilt is spearheading the fund raising tombola at the Festival of Quilts 2013.  And we need YOUR help.  The Guild needs YOUR help.  This is such a fun way of helping – become a ‘bookwrapper’.

What is a bookwrap?  It’s a decorative cover made for a book.  It could be a notebook or a sketch book – any size book that is readily available. 

There are only a few weeks left before the Festival.  Everyone is invited to participate – Guild members, fellow embroiderers, your friends, your family.  Please help raise money by making a bookwrap – and if you aren’t able to you can still support the Guild by buying a ticket on the tombola at the Festival!

There are lots of ideas and all the information you need on this website:
