I used a Frolic (by Sandy Gervais) layer cake with a couple of Fig Tree's Whimsey squares thrown into the mix. I first sketched out how I wanted each page to look, then I assigned fabrics for each page and assemble each individual page. (I had plans for three more [I really wanted a shoe page!] but I had a hard time finding the extra buckles. So I left some extra room in the book so I can add extra buckle pages later.) Then I sewed the pages together two-by-two. After that I attached four pages at a time to Pellon. I really wanted the pages to be reinforced, especially because some of the pages needed some extra help to balance out the weight. After that I top-stiched each page and then sewed it into the book cover. It was a bit more difficult than I'd originally thought, but I really like how it turned out.
I quilted the outside covers to give them some texture that the other pages didn't have. I really like the squares on the front cover.
So now I'm getting it submitted. The competition is really stiff, and I really love a lot of the projects that people have submitted, so I'm totally intimidated. I can't wait to see the tutorials for those crafters who make the cut! :)
