So much fun to make! This book came out of Leah Piken Kolidas’ Art Every Day Month Challenge November 2009. I started making postcards, painting them over wax crayon, collaging them and then started sewing my fabric scraps to them. I had just started quilting and my fabric scraps were all over the floor. I loved the mixing up of fabric and paper and from there it just seemed natural for me to turn them into books. Also it gave me a good excuse to learn a new stitch in one Keith Smith's books.
