Sewing School Quilts

It's here!  Sewing School Quilts has finally arrived and is even better than I expected.  I once heard that writing a book is a little like giving birth, and I totally agree. We worked on this book for months, then patiently waited for it to arrive, and now it's being set out into the word.  

The book is filled with 15 fun projects from big to small. It covers 5 different quilting methods using step-up projects to teach quilting techniques and then ends with a cozy-sized quilt. As with all Sewing School books, there is room to "Make It Your Own" and play around with ideas. 

I think our biggest goal with this book was to make quilting accessible to kids. The book is written for boys and girls ages 8 and up. We developed tricks for sewing blocks together and skipped some traditional elements such as a 1/4 seam allowance and lots of basting to allow kids to make a quilt both independently and successfully. After making a few quilts and projects from the book, kids should begin to refine their skills so they can move on to more advanced quilting projects. 

I hope you love it as much as we do!

You can get your very own copy on Amazon, Powell's, or your favorite bookstore!
