I posted this in the Teesha Moore stitch along thread.  This is my third journal cover - I've liked each one better than the one before!  This one will be flying to Florida to live with my sister.  Smiley  These are a lot of fun - I love the crazyness of them and I'm always picking up a little charm here or a card of buttons there with the thought that they'd be perfect for this kind of project. (Why else would someone buy a string of eight squirrel charms??  LOL)  Hope you like!
Here's the front...

and the back..... (the spine has antiquey bells and buttons running down the length.)

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

That's amazing!  A great way to use up scraps of fabric.  If only I was handy with a needle!  Smiley

This looks fantastic.  You did a great job on it. I'm sure your sister will love it. I have seen the thread for these journal covers and I keep thinking I'm going to have to have a go at it. Take care..

I am interested in personal swaps. PM me.

That is so beautiful!  It must have taken ages to do!

Thanks for the great comments - and here's a confession...If you think you don't have the time or patience then you just might want to give this a try!  I've always felt like I'm not disciplined enough to be a quilter - even though I would love to learn how!  When I saw this method of piecing I just knew it was calling my name!  Some of the more technically inclined participants in the stitch along modified Teesha's method to be a little more "ordely"- but I LOVE the wonkiness of the originals! 
  I encourage you to giveit a try...you might become an addict like me!  Wink
