Been 'quietly' on the go!

Yes it's taken many many months in the making.

The research that went into this book ,
as always,
has been exhaustive.

Drawing and redrawing every page
till it was exactly to her liking.

Scouring the aisles of many different fabric shops...

choosing just the right fabrics for each page

The perfect embellishments to fully compliment.

Nothing was overlooked
in the endeavour to make each and every page
live up to the visions that had been swirling around in her head.

From race cars...

to rocket ships.

...and everything that moves, in between!

 the time has come
to show the world
that is Jill's new
Fabric Quiet Book.

Starting life initially as a custom order,
this project very soon took on a life of it's own.

This 'first edition' is for a little boy named Bryson.

His mother was very impressed with Jill's earlier garden themed Quiet Books,

but wanted something a little more to a boys liking.

And so, 'On The Go!'
was born.

I must say,
my clever daughter never ceases to astound
me with her creativity and attention to detail.

You can view more photos of this beautiful book, and Jill's other two books, ('Garden Book' & 'The Curious Garden') here in our facebook albums. 
(just click on the small pictures to enlarge.)

These books are very limited editions.
I dare you to find anything that matches their quality
and elegance anywhere in the world.

Thanks for looking!
