Enter to win a copy of Laura Wasilowski’s new book Fanciful Stitches Colorful Quilts.
I have always been a “follow the pattern to the letter” type of quilter and have not dabbled much in the way of art quilts. I am also in love with embroidery. The time has come for me to break out of my mold and try new things. Laura’s new book has such fun and whimsical projects that I am inspired, and I am going to take the plunge and try them. The projects look easy, and the results are truly pieces of art! I love the simple fusible appliqué technique she uses and all of the fun and colorful embroidery stitches. So many art quilt books have very vague instructions because you need to use your own creativity, but it makes it hard for a beginner know where to begin. Laura gives instructions and techniques that are so clear, I feel like this is a great way for me to start. I love to use batiks and they are perfect for her projects.
My favorite, and the one I am going to make is the Houseboat.
It makes me happy just looking at it!
I also love the beautiful embroidered garden on the Garden Cottage project.
