We’ve just received the three newest quilting books from Martingale & Company, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if you wanted one of each.
The first is “Start with a Sweatshirt 2” by Nancie Wiseman. This book is a follow-up to her first sweatshirt book that shows you how to take a plain, ordinary sweatshirt and turn it into a fabulous jacket. The technique is shown with adult sized shirts but can be used on children’s shirts as well. Great for making relatively inexpensive gifts.
Next, we have “Fast, Flirty, and Fun” by Sarah Bisel. This book is great for beginners as well as the more experienced quilter. There are 11 projects to choose from including one featuring a birthday cake. What a great way to show off your newly learned skills at the next birthday party! The book includes information about color, value, and fabric selection as well as a variety of cutting, piecing, and applique techniques. You’re going to love this book!
Last, but not least, is “Exploring Embellishments” by Rose Hughes. This is a follow-up to her “Dream Landscapes” book which was a best seller. Use her Fast-Piece Applique method and learn to embellish your projects using beads, fusible Angelina fibers, buttons, threads, and more. Rose will even show you how to use nature for inspiration. Your quilts will go from so-so to stunning after you put her techniques in the mix.
As always, we will gladly stamp a Super Stitcher card for you with the purchase of each Martingale book. Once you have all nine boxes stamped you can send your card to Martingale for a free book of your choice. That means your little card is worth at least $15 or more! Free is always good so don’t miss out on the chance to earn your free book.
