My Quiet Book Pattern And Tutorial

My Quiet Book brings back a ton of memories for me. Making one for my grandsons was
a trip through time. Long, long ago, I can remember the ladies from the church who were my
mom’s age assembled them during a weekday class. I never made a quiet book for my own
children, but my older sister did. Her children were probably happier on Sunday than mine were!

My Quiet Book by Carol Swift, Just Let Me Quilt
Closed book measures 10” x 10”, for children ages 3-5


Check out the Therm O Web blog today to see how I made it using these products:
Iron – I love my purple Oliso iron!
Thread – Aurifil thread is great for applique




You can find the PDF pattern and tutorial at my Craftsy Store HERE.

So cute those monkey boys! I would like to see if he tried to walk around in those shoes, LOL!

Those little boys are so adorable! Thank you for the pattern. I use to make these books when I worked for a craft store, but it has been awhile. With a new great-grandson who loves to "read", I think it is time to make another one.

Hi Carol,
This is just fabulous! I have a 14-week great-nephew that is slightly too young for this now, but I am definitely going to make one for him. Thanks so much for sharing this idea. I'll PIN it too so others can see/find and enjoy it. Merry Christmas to you and your family. ~smile~ Roseanne
