Quilt Dad = Awesome

Last month I decided to buy myself a Kindle for my birthday, and when I mentioned this on Twitter, QuiltDad stepped right up and offered to make me a custom Kindle cover!

It came in the mail yesterday, and I feel it is my duty to share with you how wonderful it, and by extension, QuiltDad is.

I met QuiltDad at Quilt Market this spring. Look, here he is with Melissa after her book signing:

He asked me if I had any color or fabric preferences, to which I think I sort mumbled back I like old-fashioned things.

Here is what he made, with that really not-very-helpful bit of information:

The fabric, of course, is Lizzy House‘s Castle Peeps.

And I’m not entirely sure I can express how much I love it.

It’s perfect. Especially since I have been on a Georgette Heyer kick lately, gobbling down her Regency romances like they were candy (which they kind of are).

(It’s very easy to gobble books down like candy on a Kindle, since you can download them right then and there, whenever the fancy strikes you.  Believe me, a Kindle is a very dangerous device to put in the hands of somebody as addicted to both books AND instant gratification as I am.)

Of course, Castle Peeps is more Medieval in theme than Regency, but it actually really fits, considering how obsessed with chivalry and manners the characters in Heyer’s books are.  They are mm-mm-palm-throbbin’ good!

If you want to read along with me, I highly recommend starting off with The Convenient Marriage. It features one of the more delightful heroes it has ever been my pleasure to make the acquaintance of, and I expect that you might also enjoy his sardonic, witty charm.

No Regency hero is more delightful, of course, than the inestimable QuiltDad. If you don’t already, I think you should follow him on Twitter and tell him what a very nice person he is for me.

Thank you, QuiltDad!
