Just a little bit about Small Stash Sewing: The projects I've created are a way to use your precious designer fat quarters, without being a fat-quarter-only book, if you know what I mean!
The idea was: oooh how can I feature this little morsel of fabric that I love so much? So, yes...I have made up 24 projects that feature fat quarters... and sometimes something else! You know me, I'm not one to stick rigidly to a prescribed format!
So, some projects use more than one fat quarter (or less than one!), some use different kinds of fabric in addition to the cotton quilting fabric. Let's be honest, if you are hoarding fat quarters, you probably have some muslin hanging around or maybe a yard or two of a print you got supercheap, that sort of thing.
(((Small Stash Sewing will be available in May of 2010!)))
I have been so excited to finally share the book cover with you I am thrilled by your enthusiastic response.
I have some photos from one of the cover projects to share!
I'm psyched about this one because it totally exemplifies my style: both my personal sense of style and the way I like to sew.
Remember when I went to Quilt Market last fall and I made myself this scarf to wear?
That was the inspiration for this piece.
Also? Isn't my friend Shelly gorgeous?
ps omg! yay!
