New quilting book

May 25, 2005

Oh yeah, last week before my few days of annual leave I bought a new quilting book, here it is.

I bought it for further technique hints, it's the first i've seen shoing you how to roll up the section you're not working on to fit the damn thing in the sewing machine, but now I'm really glad I bought it. It has lots of whimsical, shabby chic like projects, things I woudn't normally think I'd be into but now I actually really like. Esp as you can really vary it so much with choice of fabric and individual style.

I think I am going to make this pillow for a gift, and to practice technique. It will be my first go at applique (the flower in the centre is all appliqued) and I don't want another large project right now after wrangling with the quilt last week. It should also be a good one for making me be very precise with cutting, pieceing, etc.
