Lily, who writes Lily's Quilts blog, made a quilt from Penguin books. And now, I have to start quilting as well. I have thought about it before, but have always procrastinated. Now, I found something I really want to do/have. I ordered the same Kona fabric as she used, but I chose a different jelly roll: Kona® Cotton Solids, Classic Palette.

I already calculated a bit how big of a quilt I want and how many books I should have. The quilt will be about 2 x 2.6 m and there are 8 x 7 = 56 books. The books are 18 cm x 30 cm in size and the color blocks are 9 cm in height and the off-white middle is 12 cm. The fabric between the books is Kona Snow and the spaces are 6 cm each. Below is the layout plan. The names of the books are my favorites from the Penguin classics, or ones that have a special meaning to me, but I also have chosen some of my own favorites that are not Penguin books, for example my Finnish favorite books. More specific list of books will be provided later.
