Here is a look back at the quiet book pages I completed in 2011. I didn’t start working on them until September, so I’m proud I created 19 pages! A few were created to go together in 2-page spreads. (Number 20 is complete but not posted.)

I was wondering if you would make and sell one of your 2011 Quiet Books, and if so, how much would it cost?
Unfortunately, I just wouldn’t be able to make it in a timely fashion. The pages are so detailed that it took months to complete. I’m considering making mini quiet books to sell, like the Valentine book. Pricing hand-sewn work is tough because people might not necessarily want to pay for the many hours it can take.
If you take a look at etsy.com, small qb’s start around $30 – 40 in price and up.

How delightful these are. I am a scrapbooker, knitter, and turn my hand to many crafts.
Just thought I would add to your comment to Jessica . You could never put a price on something like this… unless you are a crafty person yourself, you cannot ever appreciate the many hours of work, and love, that goes into making this sort of thing. I do applique work for quilting also, and it takes hours. You only make these sort of things by hand for family/friends who are very close to your heart.
I just googled quiet book patterns and found your website. This is a beautiful book. Thank you so much for sharing the patterns!
Hi! I have been looking up and down for lots of busy book inspiration and came across your page via Pinterest and I have to say that your busy book is probably the best I have seen yet – and I’ve looked at alot!! Great job! You should be very proud of it!
I love this idea so much and I know my boys will too!

Hello! I love your pages!! Thank you!! I was wondering if the felt from the craft store like Joanns would work okay? Do you think it would hold up?
I find that 100% synthetic felt pills over time. It’s also easier to rip. But if used gently, it can work.
