Patchwork, Please! iPad Cover

Look!  Another Zakka - Along finish for me, and I'm on schedule with the group, too. ;o)
 
This week's project from Patchwork, Please!, caught my eye,
 even though I don't own an iPad.
 
  I look at it this way, with my pretty, personalized new cover...
 I'm that much closer to owning an iPad  (think: Field of Dreams).
 
 
I made a couple of changes from the original design.  First, I decided to include a little paper-piecing and patchwork, because I love any project  that much more when I get to use my scraps to make it really unique.  My other change? I made curves rather than straight edges on the tab that overlaps to secure the cover and opted for a sew-in press snap instead of Velcro.
 
 
 Other details?
 
The quilting is straight lines only on the exterior,

 
with some curvy lines for the iPad sleeve on the interior.

 
I bet you're wondering what I will do with my iPad cover until I own an iPad?
 
It's a perfect fit for a notebook to use for journaling.  Yay! 

 
Once I own an iPad, this sweet interior pocket will hold the charger and cord.  For now, I will just admire the cuteness. ;o)
 

 
 
I'm just loving how this project finished and who knows... maybe an iPad will soon be nestled in this quilty cover!
 
Meantime, let's pop over to  A Quilter's Table to have a look at the other versions made this week in the Zakka-Along 2.0!
 
Perfect timing! I'm also linking up this finish with
 Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish-it-up-Fridays.




By the way, most of the fabrics used to make this project I bought from
 Fabric Spot - a lovely online Canadian shop...
 
just so happens that Karen has a discount of 10% off
 (use the coupon code: 10FABRICSPOT) - but you better hurry as the sale ends today!
 
As a happy customer, I can say that one of the features I really love about shopping Fabric Spot is being able to buy any fabric as a fat quarter.  Many shops don't offer that service!   I've found it's a great way to build a varied stash for quilting as you can create your own fat quarter bundles. ;o)
 
In case you missed it, HERE is my original post showcasing the pretty fabrics I bought from Karen.

  2. Well I think such a perfect iPad case deserves to have an iPad in it. I hope you are throwing very unsubtle hints all around at home.

  3. Your iPad cover turned out great. And I really like that you personalized it with your initial. The polka dot fabric you used for the binding is the perfect one to go with the lovely fabrics you used to make it.

  4. If you sew one - it will come. And when it finally DOES come, it's going to have a gorgeous home to live in, lol! Those fabrics are luscious, and I like your little modifications - definitely a case worthy of an iPad :D
