    Love to Sew: Quilting On The Move (Paperback)

    Alistair Macdonald

    English Paper Piecing (EPP) is a popular and easy method of creating beautiful, hand-sewn patchwork designs. The fabric is cut and folded over a paper template and the resulting shapes are stitched together by hand, making it ideal for sewing whether you're on the move, or at home. Successful and established author Alistair Macdonald provides 18 fabulous projects, including a lovely baby's play mat, a stylish gentleman's scarf, a useful hobby bag, a tea cosy, a gorgeous tote bag and a make-up purse. All the patchwork is done by hand sewing, using the English Paper Piecing method in fresh, bright cottons and with clear, step-by-step instructions and beautiful photographs. There is some machine sewing for putting projects together, but you can hand sew if you prefer. Templates for all the projects are included at actual size at the back of the book, and there are basic, step-by-step instructions on this classic technique at the beginning of the book. All the projects make fabulous gifts for friends and family.

    String Fling (Paperback)

    Bonnie K. Hunter

    Scraps! We've all got them - big pieces, small pieces - some we've saved from our own projects, others we've acquired from other quilter-friends who know of our love and passion for great variety in our quilts. Bonnie is back! And this time she's introducing us to a world of string piecing. Strings are strips and scraps usually too small to be useful for other projects, but they are just right for these 13 new quilts. Dig into your scraps and create your own unique, one-of-a-kind string quilts, for each string quilt is unique - there are no two alike ever! Even when made in the same design, simply the fact that the fabrics vary so much quilter by quilter, it is impossible to duplicate a string quilt. Within these pages you will find a twist on traditional, time-honored designs along with some new ideas straight from Bonnie's scrappy imagination.
