      Hello Domela, your emailadres is not working.
      I hope you’ll read this…

      As far as I know, there is no pattern.
      The bookshelf quilt is made bij Marijke.
      She asked us, the participants of a block-swap, to make a block (20×20 cm) by our own design.
      The only thing she asked us, was to use a light fawn fabric as back ground.


      We were allowed to put some sculptures (or something like that) between. Just as we would do at our shelfs at home
      The cat is a picture of Marijke’s cat, printed at fabric.
      It was the block she made herself.
      I also think she designed the clock herself. As did she with the scissors etc.
      After that… she arranged all the blocks, the way she liked it.

      I wish you a lot of succes. Ik hope this is a bit helpful
      Kind regards, Willeke

    Do you sell the pattern for this bookshelf quilt? It is the best I have seen and your work is exquisite!

  • Kay Suddeth

    Your quilt is my favorite of all the bookshelf quilts I have seen. I know you and your friends had fun creating this masterpiece. It is a real treasure. Thank you for sharing this lovely Quilt. It is my inspiration for creating a quilt for my daughter to give her when she graduates nursing school. I plan to have some of her nursing textbooks represented and have had great fun collecting fabrics to use. I am in Alabama in the US. I did have fun translating some of the comments…some words were easy, some not. Again, thank you for sharing this masterpiece.

      Hello Kay, thank you for your nice comment.
      What a great idea, to create a quilt like this for your daughter. (with nursing textbooks; I love it!)
      I would like to share your quilt here, when it’s finished.
      So please send me a picture in due time.
      (there is a google translate button at the right upper site of my blog, big smile. Even then it is sometimes difficult to understand what is written)
      Have a nice Sunday (hope you don’t have to work today) Bye from the North part (Friesland) of the Netherlands to Alabama!
