Thanks so much for the well-wishes everyone! I'm back up to 100% good health today! And therefore I was able to get my first page done! My pages are going to be 4" x 4" double-sided. I've also decided that each side of all my pages is going to be done with a different quilt pattern (and therefore, each page will be a little bit more conservative than what others may end up posting!) So, onto the piccies!

Side 1: Jacob's Star embellished with seedbeads

Side 2: India Star embellished with ribbon and scrap fabric


Yes, I know that one edge isn't finished off, but that's how I'll be attaching my pages together. Once the entire book is complete, those edges shouldn't be visible.

 Glad to hear you're feeling better! I adore traditional quilting patterns, and I'm sure to be adoring whatever you post, as conservative as it may be Smiley Those are so pretty! The seed beads are such a delicate touch.

I want to do my pages 2 sided, too, but I've been kinda stumped about how to go about it... Should i do 2 pages, then just sew them together once they're both done?

Beautiful!

Here's my (fairly basic) first page.




I made it from a strip, so the bottom was a fold rather than both sides separate, so I was able to sew the bits on both sides and get it lined up easier. I hand sewed a running stitch along some of the lines (not sure if you can see in the photos) after I sewed it shut as the pattern matches both sides, and that holds the two pieces together.

All those pages look good. I plan on being a little crazy with mine. (and yes,I would suggest doing both sides first, and then sewing them together.)

This looks like so much fun!! Your pages are all so different and wonderful. I wish I could sew so that I could join in - it would be the perfect way to practice for the quilt i've always wanted to make.

I'd get my mum to teach me with the sewing machine, but I don't think she wants to encourage any crafting until I get out of the house and find a job!  Wink

Thank you (and everyone else!)

As for my first page, I ended up wanting to actually quilt the page, so I made the two blocks, sewed them together like a pillow and stuffed a piece of felt in between, quilted it, then added my embellishments making sure to only go through the top piece of fabric... a bit time consuming when adding the embellishments, but I didn't want to try running beads through my sewing machine, hehe.

I absolutely adore Phizzychicks first page! I love the colors, the fabric texture, and the really pretty elegant simplicity of it! Altogether, a beautiful page ^_^

Those pages are absolutely beautiful!!
I had a dream last night.  About these pages.  I've decided on a Botany theme for my pages.  they will be double sided too. I'm going to research poisonous plants and do some quilting, aplique and embroidery to achieve all this... now just to wait until I can do stairs to reach  my fabric... darn c-section  Undecided

Phizzy, your first page is awesome! But what else could I have expected? Wink

Belladune, a botany theme sounds really cool! And congratulations on your baby!
