Quilt As You Go Book Cover

The wedding day is here!

Good Morning All

Well today is a very busy day in this house. We are going to a friends daughters wedding today and it is being held in Highcliffe Castle in Dorset, which is not too far from where we live.  This magnificent castle has ties to Mr Selfridge and indeed he is buried in the little church in the town as
well at St Marks  and he is buried next to his wife and mother.

So today is a very busy day and no stitching for me (none in my bag either - promise) lots to be done and hope the sun keeps shinning for this beautiful bride and her very lucky husband to be....

I leave you with a great little tutorial on quilting and making a book cover. There are some great sewing tips and dealing with binding too.

Make a drink and enjoy, it is a little over 30 minutes long but well worth the watch.

Have a great day and Happy Stitching!


  1. Have a lovely day. Thank you for the tutorial. I enjoyed yesterday's blog. I really need to learn to embroider flowers and words. Love Dawn x

    1. Hi Dawn

    You're right Sewing is medicine for the soul and not wasted time.

    I have thought about sewing whilst travelling in a car but not sure its possible, but I do knit whilst travelling in the car

    1. Hi Julie

      I could not stitch in a car it makes me feel sick, yet I can on a plane!!!

      We had a fabulous wedding weekend and we were also invited to a brunch on the Sunday which was part of the wedding party too. Danced away Saturday night as well .... Lost the shoes at around 10pm to keep dancing ... found them to go home in though!!
