Tape/ribbon bound quilted sketchbook, button closure and sketch paper signatures.

I just thought some images of some handmade books I’ve made recently were in order. The bookmaking class that I am teaching at both the Long Beach and Houston quilt festivals this year (titled “Quilted Journal”) will feature techniques to make medieval long stitch bound books. Sign up for classes through www.quilts.com  – Enjoy!
