Modern Patchwork, with you! I've been cutting, stitching, and writing for weeks and it's finally available for purchase this Tuesday! Modern Patchwork includes nine patchwork projects with step-by-step tutorials that build on each other so that even beginning sewers can feel confident in their ability to stitch together a colorful lap quilt and then recover an ugly chair!
I cover all the tools you'll need, how to select and care for your fabrics, and a sweet story about my great-grandfather's star quilt in two videos, as well as my favorite binding technique and the simple steps involved in paper piecing. This class is designed for beginning sewers but even seasoned seamstresses will enjoy original templates for quilt blocks and one of my favorite projects, the Make A Statement Pillow.
It's been refreshing to be able to spend time working on these projects. I now have about fifteen quilt ideas floating in my head since I've been back in my studio! If you've been looking for something to help you with that desire to sew your first quilt or the structure that keeps you on track to finishing something crafty you may want to check back on Tuesday!
