Did you see the wonderful notebook cover tutorial that Lynn at Alamosa Quilter recently had on her blog?  I loved it and had to make one.  Since I had a couple Moda Mini Charm packs that I didn’t know what to do with, I got to work.  Above is my notebook book cover following her directions that you can find here.

She has pictures and nice directions for quilting it too.  However, I must admit I was lazy and just did straight line quilting. What I liked about these instructions is that all your seams are enclosed when you are finished. Above is what mine looks like, ready for the notebook.
I wish I had remembered to attach the “this book belongs to” square.  When I make one for my six-year-old great grandson I’ll have to do that.  So cute.  BTW you don’t have to use the mini charm squares.  Lynn shows you a number of notebook covers using various fabrics and quilting.  Check it out!

A special thanks to Lynn for these wonderful instructions.  I’m betting the Scrappers School House will want to try making some of these.

So very cute! I recognize that fabric line. I don't remember it's name, but I know I bought some of it when it first came out. It's so cheery.

That's really cute! I have made a notebook cover, but I'll have to go check out Lynn's tutorial! We have a notebook cover exchange coming up and that will be just great to have a tutorial to show folks!
