The Book Nerd quilt is perfect for the reader in your life. You know, the one who always carries a book with them or talks endlessly about what they are currently reading. It might be a friend or it might be you! I confess to being a book nerd myself. Just give me a good book, a quilt to snuggle under and something warm to drink. Now throw in my favorite fabrics and perhaps some customization on the books and you’ve just created my perfect night in.
The Book Nerd Quilt is not only Fat Quarter friendly, it is also Fat Quarter Bundle friendly. So you can showcase 20 of your favorite fabrics. The pattern features basic paper piecing along with traditional rotary cut techniques. Keep the quilt at the given size for a comfortable throw, or easily enlarge this block-based quilt to a bed size quilt. Add in details using embroidery, applique or paper piecing to truly customize any or all of the books. The possibilities are endless.
