With Fabric and Thread: More Than 20 Inspired Quilting and Sewing Patterns by Joanna Figueroa is one of those books that can truly be called a pure delight. The pages are full of beautiful photography; there are beautiful projects to create, and there are chapters full of helpful information for sewists and quilters of all levels. I have especially been enjoying the chapter on "Creating a Color Story" this week.
I have a couple of favorite projects in the book...well I have a lot of favorites...I think I need to make almost everything! But there are two projects that I'm especially fond of because last summer I was able to piece two of the featured quilts. Cherry Blossom (pictured above) is one of my favorite quilts ever...I can't wait to make my own! (This quilt is also featured in two other colorways that are absolutely beautiful)!
I was also able to piece Fresh Vintage Patchwork; Joanna pieced the house block, and I pieced the rest of the quilt and put everything together. This is another timeless design that is on my summer "to-do" list!
The Summer Soiree Patchwork Quilt is another "must make" for me. And there are so many other patterns: kitchen accessories, home decor items, aprons, bags and more!
I love that the book has a hard cover and is spiral bound; the back of the book has a pattern pocket to store all of the full-sized patterns that are included!
I highly recommend With Fabric & Thread...it's the perfect addition to any quilter or sewist's library!
Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful weekend!
