If you need a quick gift here it is. These work up so quick and it's a good way to use up scraps from your stash.

Finished size 2" x 7-1/2"
One 2" square for the top.

One 2" x 6" piece for the bottom.
One 3" x 8-1/2" piece for backing.
One strip 2-1/4" by width of fabric (selvedge to selvedge) for the binding.
From thin cotton batting cut one 2-3/4" x 8-1/4" piece.
With right side together and using a 1/4" seam allowance sew the top and the bottom together. Press to the darker of the two fabrics. Sandwich the backing, batting, and bookmark together. Pin and quilt as desired. attach the binding and your finished.
HINT: Use a muslin or light fabric on the back and with a fabric pen write that special someone a message.
The picture below shows variations of bookmarks using pieced units at the top.

Hope you have as much fun with these as I have.
