How to Create Any Size Quilted Journal Cover!

You can make a quilted book cover in 1-2 hours depending on how much time you spend on the quilting part so it’s a great quick finish project and an achievable beginner quilting project too.

Materials Needed – Any Size Quilted Journal Cover

– Journal – Quilt batting – Fabric scraps – Lining fabric – Ribbons, buttons, elastic (optional)

Step 1: Measure your book cover

Measure your book around the spine from the edge of the front cover to the edge of the back cover. That is your width.

Then use your tape measure to measure the height of the book along the front cover vertically. This is your height.

Step 2: Quilt Your Journal Cover

If you want to keep things super simple you can of course cut one piece of fabric for your outer cover and just quilt it down to your batting.

I start by placing one piece of fabric on the right side of the batting (this will be the front cover of your journal) and quilting it down.

Take the two pieces you cut as described below and fold them in half wrong sides to wrong sides. Place the raw edge of that folded piece of fabric along the side edges of each end of your journal cover.
