I'll try and explain what I did. That way, even if no one else ever uses it, I can come back and make another (I also have a kindle)!
I started off by making a quilt sandwich of the batting and each colour of fabric. I used rectangles measuring approximately 9" x 17". I lined them up evenly, and basted it with safety pins. I would have liked to stipple it, but I don't have a free motion quilting foot, so I used the walking foot to quilt it. I simply did vertical lines using the foot width as a guide, and mine is a bit more than 1/4".
Edited to add: this is too wide. I think that if you just measured the width of the kindle, add 1" and you'll be good.
Once I finished the quilting, I made 1" binding and sewed that along the two narrow ends. Then I folded the whole thing in half, right sides together, the long way. I used a small zig-zag stitch and sewed up the sides, sewing the corners a bit. I trimmed off all the excess that I safely could.
Once I flipped it inside out I added a cute button and a loop (to the back, inside) in the same colour as the binding to hold it shut. Nothing too fancy! I am sure there is a better way to do this, but I'm quite pleased with it.

forgot to make it long enough, and decided this
would work just fine!
After I finished the kindle case, I finished pressing my 9-patch squares. There they are, all 48 of them, and tomorrow I will start sewing my rows together. We'll see how far I get!
