Here are two different sizes of quilted notebook covers that I made myself, and some that are ready to make for gifts. The pattern came from an issue of Fons & Porter's magazine, Love of Quilting. I'll try to find the exact issue and note it here for you.

This quilt is one of my favorite scrappy patterns. It's called Sawtooth Cats. The cats backs and tails and sawtooth border are all paper pieced from tiny scraps. It was a raffle quilt for our local humane society, where our Black Lab, Zeus is from. I asked for volunteers to help put it together, and my dear quilting friends from the Galena Territory pitched in.
We began with a morning paper piecing together, with some of the ladies paper piecing for their first time. Others pitched in to help me with the borders, the sashing, embroidery, binding, and the machine quilting. It turned out so pretty, earning $500 for Safe Haven. It now hangs in the home of a generous friend, another cat lover and supporter of needy cats and dogs, who also helped work on the quilt.
The quilt is now on my Dream List of projects I would like to make for myself. We'll see...
