I needed to produce a medium crafted item for a white elephant exchange and after much deliberation, here's what I came up with Cheesy

Front:



Back:



Thread basted quilt sandwich:



Close-ups of hand quilted sections:




After handwashing and a quick tumble in the dryer...all nice and puckery:



Binding (yup, a different fabric for each edge):



Interior section of the journal:



Inside cover of the journal:



Stitched spine of the journal:



Additional views of the journal:




The cardstock pages were intentionally left blank so that the recipient can do whatever she wants with the journal Cheesy

Thanks everyone!  It was really fun to construct Cheesy  Once the quilted bits are done, the rest of it was a breeze!

It's gorgeous!  I love it.  Smiley  (I may just steal this idea for myself!)
