This book is packed with sweet projects based on themes of friendship, family, and home. The projects range from small projects (e.g. Cushions, Totes, Coin Purse, Table Topper, Pincushion, thread catcher baskets) to mini stitchery that are 4 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ to quilts that are 70 1/2″ x 84 1/2″.
All of the projects have easy to follow instructions with great visuals and certainly would make beautiful projects to decorate your home, as well as to give as heartwarming gifts that would be cherished for years to come. With 10 projects in this book, I feel this book is an exceptional value.
I hope you get a chance to check out this new book at your favorite quilt or sewing store. But if you don’t see it, do let them know you are interested in them making this book available, as it is so new they may not yet be aware of it.
