I wrote a book! Introducing Jump into Patchwork and Quilting
Writing a book is on many people's bucket lists. So when I was invited by C and T publishing to write a book aimed at beginner quilters, who are on their creative journey (after all that mask making in lockdown) it really was a dream come true.
What an honour and a pleasure it was to combine all the things I love; patchwork, quilting, writing and photography. Jump into Patchwork and Quilting quickly came to life in my mind, and it wasn't long before it was starting to come together on the page. Just a few short months later, and it is finally here!
I was so fortunate to have full creative control, and I designed 6 projects with the beginner quilter in mind, covering all the basic skills. The book includes 3 small projects and 3 quilts. They are;
*The Pretty Patchwork Pillow
*The Sleepy Moon Mug Rug
*The Tea and Treats Table Runner
*Making Waves baby quilt
*Log cabin throw quilt
*Cherished Sampler quilt
Each project uses a different technique so you can develop your skills and confidence as you work your way through the book. I have tried to include as many hints, tips and suggestions as I possibly can, so that you can quilt confidently and happily. These projects are meant to bring you joy!
I've also collaborated with my favourite thread company, Aurfil, creating a beginners thread collection to accompany the book.
There is a discount if you purchase the thread box and book BUNDLE in my shop.
I hope you love this book and the projects as much as I have enjoyed creating them for you! I can't wait to see your versions when you share them on social media. Nothing gives me more joy than seeing quilters stitch up one of my patterns, using fabrics that are special to them. Please be sure to tag me @sarahashfordstudio in your posts, I would love to connect with you.
