Patchwork Book Cover

Some of you will have made this Book Cover with me before.
Gloria asked me for the instructions and I though it would make a nice little project to take my Thursday Ladies up to 16th July when we break for the summer.
We did this first part in class this morning.
So this is a recap. But I think the instructions are clear enough for any of my readers to follow along with us.
They would make fabulous Christmas/Birthday presents.
I'll post part 2 next week.

I'm feeling rather mellow tonight - I think I fancy listening to some Jason Mraz   I'm Yours
