I’m particuliarly interested in the Points of View, Landscape Quilts to Stitch and Embellish by Valerie Hearder. While there are some very nice projects in the book, I’m thinking that this book is really about technique and inspiration — which is EXCELLENT. You’ll have to take a look at it at your local shop.
The Pickles were talking about their quilting spaces about a month ago and look at the book that Martingale just put out! It’s an 8-page planner. That has wipe-off ability so you can move your furniture around, etc.
Looks like I’ll have zero excuse for sewing in a messy room from now on. That said, $12.95 for this little leaflet is jaw-dropping astounding. I love me my Martingale but holy-moly what were they thinking when they were pricing this one?
Fig Tree Quilts, Houses by Joanna Figueroa and Lisa Quan. Nice book. Great concept. BUT ver-r-r-r-r-r-r-y traditional. So what’s wrong with that? I like it! Oh, and the little sampler on page 48 IS FABULOUS!
Lookie, lookie what Clover sent! It’s their Nouveau Smocking Technique. It makes smocking EASY….just like their fab-o yo-yo makers! They are stickers that you place on the fabric and then just stitch in numerical order! Can’t get much easier than that!
I’m so behind on the magazine — later dudes! xooxm
