This was a custom order but I wanted to share it with you in case you are thinking of making something special for a Mother's Day gift. These crazy patch journals are fun, easy, and can be as elaborately embellished or as elegantly simple as you want to make them. I've already sent out lots of the eBooks for making these crazy patch journal covers, but if you want a copy of it just leave me a comment. I'll be working on several more in the next few weeks, so when they are finished I'll post pictures of them right here for you to see. They will also be available in my Etsy shop if you would like to purchase one, but really they are great fun to make. No two are exactly alike, so this is a unique gift that will be treasured by the recipient. You might even want to make one for yourself!
Don't forget that there is a FREE quilt project tutorial on the Ruby blog. It is an appliqued bookmarker and all the instructions and templates are right there for you to print off and make your very own Berry Berry Bookmarker, designed by Rochelle Martin of Cottage Quilt Designs.
And then, you will want to get the next issue of Ruby for Women because Rochelle will be starting the first block in the "Gardener's Delight" quilt project. It will consist of eight different blocks, with all instructions available in the next eight issues of Ruby for Women. When you finish this project, it will make a gorgeous throw or wall hanging for your home. Oh, and one more thing . . . we now have a Facebook Fan Page for Ruby for Women. Stop by and join our fan club and we'll keep you up-to-date on all of the exciting events going on at Ruby for Women!
