A Final Shout to My Quiet Book!

I know that I should be saying shhhh… stay quiet, but I am so happy with my finished quiet book that I want to jump up and say Hooray!!:)

I used two orphaned 12.5″ quilt blocks from my tone it down quilt for the cover. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!

I have had so much fun making every page of this truly creative book. I enjoyed saying ROAR as I sewed the Lion page with his braided tail. And who doesn’t like a polka dot pocket stuffed with a hankie?

Does anyone have the time? This happy clock will be happy to mark it down. I bet the snaps on this dress are going to be a favorite quiet time activity:)

Maybe the car in the garage will be the toy of choice, or the darling little clothespins might actually make laundry fun. I’m glad I have a dryer and don’t have to actually hang clothes on a line!

Fuzzy soft mittens and a soft little chick are a treat for little fingers…ok, I like feeling them too. But my fingers are a bit too big to make the chick’s beak .

I like the bright colors of the flowers and the turtle’s shell.

I bound each of these pages with dressmakers tape that was given to me by a dear older friend . She passed away a few years back, but now I will look at this book and always remember her:)

It has been a fun fun adventure making this little quiet book. It is kind of an addictive project. I may have to make a few for my grandchildren as well….we shall see:)!

Thank you for following along. Please feel free to comment below and say hi. Friends like you always make my day a T-Sweets day!!

  1. What a great little book to help children develop manual dexterity!! Just needs a zipper and Velcro to cover all the bases. Something like this would also be good for older folks with dementia and arthritis. Wonderful idea!!

    1. Thank you so much! You are right about the zipper:). I have a little tepee page but didn’t want to over picture everyone. You are a smart reader and noticed! Lol:)! As far as older folks go—. That is genius! I hadn’t thought of that. The wheels are turning…. 😊❤️


  2. big round of applause on this one ~ so adorable and perfect for little ones at church. I remember you beginning this that was its main purpose. A light bulb just went off in my head as I was reading all the comments … what about a ‘Quiet Book’ done in bible stories or bible characters !!!! LOL I know I am adding to your project load ideas and maybe you thought of that already (?) had to mention this because if anyone could craft this idea – you can! Sharon
