Fast Fabric Gifts
One of my favorite challenges in 2016 was writing a booklet called Fast Fabric Gifts for Love Patchwork & Quilting Magazine Issue 41. I've created a lot of patterns over the last few years, but nothing has felt more my style than these 6 quick patchwork projects. Rainbow colors, linen accents, and fussy cutting galore fill these pages, and it all makes me happier than I can say. I spent months writing directions, auditioning prints, sewing samples, and taking photographs before mailing everything off to the lovely people at LPQ who put it all together into the most beautiful little booklet that comes free with Issue 41. It was finally released this month, and I'm so excited to share it with all of you -- just in time for last minute holiday sewing!
The Curio Pocket will keep your smallest tools in line, just perfect for organizing your creative space or sewing on the go.
Keep your change close by -- and get a little taste of English paper piecing -- with the Laundromat Coin Purse.
The simplest pattern in here might also be my favorite. I went crazy with fussy cutting on the Road Trip Pillow!
The Snapshot Needlebook is small but handy. I love featuring a favorite fabric scrap on the cover!
The Gadget Sleeve was designed for an e-reader, but you could easily adjust the size for other items. The piecing on this is tiny but so fun!
If you're looking for a reusable gift bag, you'll definitely want to whip up a Boardwalk Mini Tote. Hooray for gift wrap that doesn't have to go into the trash can!
You can find issue 41 in local quilting shops and bookstores or order a digital copy. Check out the Love Patchwork & Quilting website for details!
