    Just happened upon your quiet book project from Pinterest yesterday. Would so love to make two for my twin grandsons. Noticed there is no access to the last two posts and especially on how to put it all together. Will you be posting this? Don’t want to start something I won’t know how to finish. Or can you point me in the direction of a tutorial on how to put it all together with a cover? Love your website and like your facebook page.

      Hi Louise! Thanks for your interest. I am planning on finishing up the last of these before the end of February and hope to release a pdf download with all of the information in one e-book, much easier to follow along if you’d like to wait for it! I will be posting the cover – I’m aiming for sooner than the end of Feb, but it seems I have been delayed more than once, so I don’t want to promise!

    Hi! I recently discovered your blog and am doing the quiet book sew-along by my lonesome self…..I’m a little late to the party! :) Your work is beautiful!

    I have a question, though. Have you posted the cover/book assembly tutorial? I can’t find it. Thanks a lot!

      Oops, I just noticed the previous post and saw that you answered the question. Thanks!

      I’m so sorry for the delay Carrie. I have had to shelve this one for too long and didn’t meet my end of Feb. deadline. I am aiming for end of March and SO hope to be able to finish it off.

    Thank you so much for this wonderful post!!
    I have been searching the web for a step-by-step tutorial on quiet books and all I could find were no-sew felt options. I am going to make this for my grand daughter!
    Thanks again!!
