is not only a seriously clever quilt maker, fabric designer
.... she's a fab book writer type person too!!
She's half of the creative duo that brought us MO
, but now she's a solo authoress with the mostess too.
I don't know about you but these days I don't actually buy quilting books for the patterns.
I buy them for the pictures ... the colourful inspiration that gets me out of my comfy chair and up to the sewing table.
I soooo want to crawl into Sarah's fabric stash and wallow in the colourful goodness.
But what took me by surprise about this book, is that I was actually REALLY interested in reading the patterns. The concept of the book is so very clever. 10 different quilting techniques, each illustrated with a dolly quilt pattern (in case you want to try it out before committing to a larger project) and a larger bed-sized pattern.
Great illustrations and well written patterns.
I really HAVE to make this quilt (LOVE the little 3D tabs in the border!!!) .....
So .... do yourself a favour and go check out this ACE new book!!
