Easily Adapt This Pattern for Any Use, Not Just Recipes!
A patchwork cover not only looks good but will keep your recipe binder clean and protected. This is a great idea for gifts, too. Treat a newlywed to a binder with some of your favorite family recipes inside.
This cover can easily be adapted for family photos and anything else you normally keep in a binder. Just change the letters, or omit them entirely.
Decorate the band the letters are in with fun applique, little pieced blocks or leave it out and continue the patchwork across the entire cover.
This easy project by Melissa Cory from Happy Quilting will be a quick one to finish up, even if you’ve never quilted before. Basic sewing skills are all that you’ll need.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
