Quilted Cookbook Cover Finished!

I am so happy with this quilty finish for Mom! Loaded with (large-type) recipes from the NY Times, she can enjoy cooking despite eye surgery's ;-)
I fussy-cut some whimsy,
And used a few pinwheel orphans - two more on the backside:
This is the second book cover I have made. The first is my own sketch book and the cover does not fit as well as it should. Practice makes perfect, this one is just right!
Some of these prints pictured in this patchwork are included in my scrappy giveaway - open until Sunday night, May 10th! Wow, there is nothing like a giveaway to bring the comments in! I had fully intended to answer every one, but this may not be possible! Thank you all for your patience, and welcome to new followers! Each time I read a message regarding a new follower, it feels like a bit of a hug! Ty and I are really enjoying the feedback left regarding his rebar barn blocks, and I think (hope!) it is the incentive he needed to pick this up again.

So far, 50 of the comments left are NO-REPLY BLOGGERS! This does make lighter duty of replying, but it is impossible to contact the winner if one of their names is drawn!!

Todays finish is a quick-share, with a note of Thank You to those hosting Friday finish linkups:
TGIFF, hosted by Quilt Matter this week!
Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop? with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict
This finish met two finish goals:
ALYOF May Finish Party, (my goal was set here)
and my second Q2 finish with 2015 Finish Along!

Hope y'all have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!

    I can empathize with you regarding no-reply commenters. I wish Google would come up with something better. I checked out your hubby's rebar barn quilts and they look amazing. Very inventive you two are. Follow you I must. (I speak Yoda when tired)
