Volume 9: May 31, 2017 - Dec 27, 2017
My daughter Robin and I are pictured on the front cover seated together while visiting the Houston Quilt Festival. The post for our fun time there was dated 11/9/17. My quilt out of Kaffe Fassett prints titled Out of the Blue is featured on the back cover. The post describing this quilt is dated 8/16/17. When I created this book in June 2018, I chose the cover color of green to pick up my green straw hat on the front and the green round of prints on the back cover.
The Dedication for Volume 9 reads
DL2Q Vol. 9 takes you to several quilt shows, the big one in Houston and three in California. Besides quilts sewn, there are many grandchildren-focused items: crib sheets, blankets, dolls, and pillows. Holiday decor includes pumpkin and haunted house wall hangings and a Christmas tree skirt. A zany zebra will greet you, too.
– Diane I. Chambers

The Volume 1 post contains tips I learned when I first started making these books. The post for Volumes 3 and 4 has an explanation of why I no longer add captions to the photos on my blog. To these tips I'd like to add what I learned from Volume 9. If I keep the number of posts I include to 24 or less, the Table of Contents will be one page and not have that small spillover onto a second page. My nine-volume collection of DianeLoves2Quilt is shown below. From this overview I notice that square format photos make the best cover presentation and, after that, portrait format does pretty well, also. Landscape format is my last choice format option.
