I’m excited to be able to share insights with you today about some new books with #CreativeGoodness from Martingale.
Huggable Amigurumi, by Shannen Nicole Chua
This is an absolutely adorable book, that uses basic stitches to crochet amigurumi softies that will certainly delight all ages. They would certainly make great gifts, as well as be cute to decorate your own home. Absolute irresistable. This book has easy to follow instructions, with great visuals, making this book perfect for confident beginners, as well as those with great expertise with crocheting.
Sew This and That! 13 Quick-to-Make Quilted Projects, by Sherri K. Falls
With more than a dozen fun projects this book is an exceptional value. All the projects would make great gifts, as well as usable handmade items for your home. And, this book includes a stamp of Martingale’s high quality books, in that each project has easy to follow instructions with great visuals.
Moda All-Stars Mini Marvels: 15 Little Quilts With Big Style, by Lissa Alexander
Each project offers the opportunity to try a different technique (e.g. traditional piecing, applique’, paper piecing, and even embroidery). And, all come with easy to follow instructions with great visuals. With the focus on mini-quilts, most of these projects could be completed very quickly, probably in a day for most quilters. And, for those that may want larger projects, the designs could easily be adapted. Certainly these projects would also make great gifts, as well as to use to decorate your home throughout the year.
This will certainly be a popular book for fans of Pat Sloan, who are wanting to learn the very basics of walking-foot and free-motion quilting. There is a good section on the basics, with great visuals. Another section focuses on Walking-Foot Quilts, which includes easy patterns to make a Strippy Table Runner, a Mini Charm Star, Checkerboard Hearts, etc, with all easy to follow instructions that make for easy walking-foot quilting projects. The last section shares a few easy patterns that are good projects for beginners to learn free-motion quilting.
All of these books come with Martingale’s quality and value where they each have easy to follow instructions and great visuals, making them perfect for all levels of creativity (beginner to advanced). I hope you get a chance to check out these books at your favorite quilt shop. But if you don’t see them, let them know you are interested in them making these books available in their store. They are such new books, the store may simply not be aware of them. Of course, you can also check out these books online at Martingale, or Amazon.
I also want to share that Martingale is a sponsor of an upcoming event which I’ll kick off on December lst, to celebrate “12 Days of Christmas”, with daily giveaways.
