Books in Print

Created by staff members in celebration of the new library building, Books in Print is constructed from strips of various cotton prints designed to look like books on a shelf. Staff member Denise Griffin, an experienced quilter, found the bookcase pattern and organized the effort. It was a first quilting experience for the other participants who worked on the quilt over the course of nine months. The top of the quilt contains a batting and backing and is machine quilted between each book and shelf to achieve the desired effect. A photo of the library mascot, Miss Mouse, was photo-transferred onto fabric and appliqued onto a block. The names of the quilters, as well as the titles of various books, are also found on the design.
