Hello quilters! In a few weeks I'll be traveling to a baby shower for which I am making a quilt. The invitation requests that instead of a greeting card, each guest bring a book that's "signed with your thoughts." I've already chosen a book and am mulling over what to write.

Just wondering whether anyone can share ideas for gift wrapping the book and quilt together? I'm hoping to come up with an out-of-the-box way to present the gift. If I have enough fabric left when the project is done I could (possibly, depending on time constraints) make a tote or basket. Or maybe there is some sort of small, easy toy or decoration that I could make to decorate a traditional gift box.

Any suggestions? Please note I'm an intermediate quilter and have virtually no other sewing skills, hence the need for easy projects.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
