The Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild hosted a Journal Cover swap. We each picked a fat quarter, randomly swapped, and used that as our inspiration to make the cover for the recipient.
The fabric I had was Bangle from Valori Wells Karavan line in Peacock. I added Joel Dewberry's Herringbone in Lake on the fold of the cover and some Kona Nightfall on the edge. The machine embroidery I added was my attempt at finding a design that matched the fabric well - this has circles and the accents that mirrored the Bangle print.
Here's an open shot of it. I used the tutorial at Bloom and Blossom and the measurements of my post over on the LVMQG website.
I hope she likes it!
