Back of the Stacks

I had big plans for using up scraps and making a complicated pattern on the back of the quilt. But I decided against it because I’m a little obsessed with the focal fabric and wanted to showcase it.

I could spend hours gushing over this fabric. It’s designed by Jenni Calo for Connecting Threads and, as much as I love her designs in general, she really outdid herself with this one. It even has its own librarian on it!

The colours are so warm and inviting, and there are so many cute details.

I seriously love this fabric

There’s just one little itty bitty problem…

OCD Librarian alert!

I know this totally doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things, but let me just be my OCD librarian self for a minute here.

As you can see, this book on Sewing has a call number of 973.4 – a cute detail, right? Except 973.4 is the number for American History, specifically the Constitutional Period. A book on sewing should have a Dewey Decimal number of 646.2 or thereabouts. Realistically I don’t expect anyone to actually notice this (I mean, look how tiny that number is in the overall pattern), and I doubt anyone  other than the most diehard of library nerds would realize it’s off, but I just had to point it out. Okay, now that I’ve got that off my chest I feel much better.
