When Jemima Flendt of Tied With A Ribbon asked me if I'd like a copy of her brand new book Quilt It, Crochet It, I jumped at the chance.
Being a quilter, I knew that I wanted to make one of the projects, and I just loved this cute Log Cabin Potholder. I decided to use some of the fabric from my Sew With Me collection with Home Bargains, it was the perfect project!
The pot holder came together in no time at all, and with clear step instructions, diagrams and photos I was able to easily work out what to do.
What do you think??
I was so pleased with my curved bias binding too!
The lovely thing about this book is it teaches basic patchwork, and then there is an accompanying crochet project.
I confess I have not got around to learning crochet yet, but when I do, this is the book I need! This is the accompanying Log Cabin Granny Square to the Log Cabin quilted project.
The book tells you everything you need to get started with patchwork and quilting...
And everything you need to get started with crochet.
There are 14 projects in this book, 7 quilting and 7 crochet, and they are either small or medium sized projects, so there's plenty of opportunity to try new skills on a small scale.
Other features include:
- Quilting tools and supplies
- Crochet tools and supplies
- Quilting tips
- Crochet tips
- Crochet stitches and techniques.
If you're a keen crafter and want to learn the joy of patchwork and crochet, you will love this book. It's such a clever idea and I love the bonus tips and nuggets of information throughout as well.
Amazing work Jemima!
