Greetings from sunny Asheville, North Carolina! The kind folks at the Jolly Jabber invited me to share some info about two recent books: Pretty Little Mini Quilts and Pretty Little Pillows. I am so proud to have worked on these books (Lark is my day job!) and to have a handful of designs in them.
Chances are your spring sewing to-do list is a mile long already (I know mine is!), but you’re going to want to add a few more projects to that list after thumbing through these collections.
I personally wish my home was more pillow friendly; most everything cushion-like ends up encrusted in dog slobber. But that doesn’t mean I love them any less. They’re such a wonderful canvas for us busy crafters: small, quick to make, and both useful and pretty. Plus, they’re the perfect way to bring your favorite fabrics into other rooms of the house: love that!
However, if I had to pick a poison, it would most definitely mini quilts. Oh, lovely quick things that don’t require commitment! Actually, since making the projects for this book, my obsession has only grown, along with my affinity for fusible web (good stuff!).
