Bookbinding 101 (tutorial)

I’m almost finished with the hand quilting of the Split Rail Fence Quilt… Since I am spending so much time with it, I thought I would post a few re-visits to some of my favorite sites for the next few days. 

Danny Gregory’s Bookbinding 101 is a great tutorial for anyone wanting to put together their own daily journals, art journals, fabric journals…whatever kind of journals you need.  This was my first try.  I had some pieces of mat board scraps from framing some pictures and they were almost exactly the size needed for a book.  So I trimmed them down to exact and got started.  The directions are not hard to follow and the book making was actually very easy.  The fabric cover is padded with thin batting for my book, but it doesn’t have to be.  I use my book  for personal things… poetry or songs written by family, doing small paintings using acrylics or pastels…   I enjoy it… Hopefully it will make lovely memories for my children and grandchildren…

Have a look…
