Well here's a bolt from the blue!
My friend Jessica Alexandrakis has written another book,
Not just another book but another beautiful book!
What I like about her new book is that it's not filled with lots of big projects
that you just wont make.
No, this book is all about making blocks
and fitting them together to make
simple but beautiful quilts.
Okay so if you are an experienced quilter
you may find it a little simplistic.
However, I love that the blocks are all sewn
with different techniques
giving you the chance to pick up new skills
as well as giving you a refresher of old ones.
I've tried to give you an idea below,
of course there are many more beautiful ideas,
but I must leave some surprises for your perusal!
Funnily enough I've been wanting to try a quilt made using this applique technique.
Might have to try this one.
foundation paper piecing,
needle turn applique,
improvisational string piecing,
to no waste flying geese.
As well as teaching you all these new tricks
there's all the usual 'how tos'
from fabric choices to quilt assembly.
There are five highly ageeable/usable projects including the sampler quilt above.
having a flick through, it's a lovely read,
especially if you're new to quilting books.
If you can't wait until then it will is available via Amazon
The release date for The Complete Quilter in the UK is today!!
The expected release date for the US and Canada
is late July.
