Whatever Wednesday

I did some sewing.

And it is quilted.

But it is not a quilt.

It's a book cover!

I covered my task master journal with some Bee Hive Rules fabric.

I have found the pattern and tutorial here, at Stitch by Stitch.

On the inside, I used a fabric with a bee and some flowers, of course.

My only regret is that I didn't sew in a ribbon to use as a bookmark. It shall be done on my second effort. :^D  I shall also add a quarter inch more to the measurement as this one is pretty tight fitted. My measurements were too accurate and didn't take into account the thickness of the batting, I guess.

The quilting is very simple, gentle wavy lines, like a bee line.

Until next time ...



  1. I LOVE that fabric! Have not got around to covering mine yet - must add that to my to do list!! xx

  2. Ooh c'est très sympa comme idée et le tissu que tu as choisi est parfait !

  3. Nicely done:) You mentioned you wanted a bookmark ribbon on the next one-how about a pen holder too! I have seen where they just add a bit of elastic to hold one.

  4. lovely fabric for a book cover....

  5. I love your choice of fabric! Perfect for the book!
    And aren't these small projects fun for a fast finish?

  6. That is such a good idea! I've been wanting to make a notebook cover, too - I'll have to go take a look at the tutorial!

  7. I have always wanted to do this. Thanks for sharing the tutorial. Happy to see you linking your journal cover up with Oh Scrap!

  8. Its been a long time since I've made one of these, I'll check out the tutorial. Super cute fabric you used!
