Never, ever, ever in my wildest dreams did I think that when I left Teaching several years ago that I would become a Full time Quilter let alone write a book. Well it is time to pinch myself because after lots of work designing, creating, sewing and quilting my first book - Weekend Quilting is here.
Weekend Quilting had been designed to get you inspired to Sew and Quilt and make projects from start to finish over several days. Finding time to quilt doesn't have to be a luxury. In this book there are Quilts, Cushions, Table Runners and Mini Quilts to make in several days or less.
Written for quilters of all skill levels - there are 16 designs with 8 basic blocks and techniques from Nine Patches, Pinwheels to Appliqué and Foundation Paper Piecing. There are also chapters on Quilt making Basics and finishing techniques as well as all my favourite tips and tricks.
This really is a dream come true and I am so excited about its release. I know how busy our lives are, jammed packed with all of the work and family things that need to be done. I very much wanted to create a book that allowed time to sew and quilt so you could start and finish a project in a short time frame.
Weekend Quilting has 16 Projects including Lap Quilts, Mini Quilts, Pillow, Table Runners and even a Pennant all designed to be made within a weekend. There are 8 Techniques involved and help you to grow your skills in quilting and sewing - from 9 Patch's to English paper Piecing to Foundation Paper Piecing - there really is something for everyone. Beautifully illustrated with hand drawn Watercolour drawings, the book gives you all the instructions, Templates and helpful Tips and Techniques you will need.
The Blooms Mini Quilt from the Book is made using the technique of Appliqué. I have designed full size Acrylic Templates to go with this project so that you can make the Blooms Mini Quilt with ease (The book includes the pattern these are an optional addition). The Templates make for easy Tracing of the Blooms and Leaves for the Project. They are also versatile so you can use them anyway you choose. These Acrylic Template Sets are also available to purchase in my Store here.
