Furry update and a new quilt book!
Katy of FQ has been an online buddy for years and years, every since I won a giveaway on her blog. (I still have the Cath Kidston Tesco Christmas shopping bag I won!) 'T was in the days that giveaways were more rare and (lucky for me) not many people entered either, haha. I think I first stumbled upon John of FQ when we were both contributing blocks for the Bushfire Quilt Project (also quite a few years ago now) and we exchanged embroideries in the Hoop Up Swap etc etc. Can't wait to meet both John and Katy (and a lot of other quilters too) on the Fat Quarterly Sewing Retreat in London early June! Anyway, naturally I just had to buy the new book they wrote with FQ colleagues Tacha Bruecher and Brioni Greenberg.
I'm having a great time browsing Shape Workshop for Quilters. I love that it's not only got great projects but a lot of individual blocks as well. Some blocks are basic, some are traditional with a modern twist, there is really something for every quilter in here. Beginners will find all the basic information about quilting in this book and easy blocks to start with and gain confidence in quilting. More advanced quilters will find much inspiration in this book. Shape Workshop for Quilters is available here (and in many other places I'm sure..)
This reminds me that I must do a post about all the quilts I have in progress right now!
