This month the McKinney Modern Quilt Guild held a book/bookmark swap. The idea was to bring a book from your crafty library that no longer interests you, but might interest another modern quilter. Then, make a fun bookmark to put with it. I was lucky to receive this awesome book and beautiful bookmark, made by my buddy Joellen, though I didn't realize that when I chose it!
The bookmark I made received quite a bit of Instagram attention and several people have asked for a tutorial. Martha took this one home and seemed to really like it.
dresden mini I had just made and they worked perfectly for these diamonds. Baste the fabric to your diamonds. I'm a glue baster, but do whatever makes you happy...
Trim the edges of the felt evenly around the center. I did mine about 1/4" away. Don't trim the ribbon here! Make sure you lift it out of the way when you trim the top & bottom. Cut your ribbon ends on an angle to prevent fraying.
There you have it! A beautiful bookmark to tuck in a friend's birthday card, a special child's backpack or your latest read. Enjoy!
