Overview

More than 20 inspired quilting and sewing patterns

As a generation of mostly self-taught, creative women takes to the world of fabric, quilting and sewing are joining forces in a way that they never have before. Long-time quilters, committed to their craft for decades, are starting to experiment with a bit of home sewing or simple sewing for their grandchildren. The younger side of the sewing community is embracing the world of patchwork and quilting, a world that once seemed inaccessible or even undesirable to younger seamstresses. With Fabric & Thread seamlessly bridges the language and intimidation gap between these two crafts and delivers a unique collection of projects that appeal to sewers and quilters alike.

Featuring 20 new projects, With Fabric & Thread marries the nomenclature of both sewing and quilting to create an effortless set of instructions that anyone can follow. Plus, a special section features six patterns that can be accomplished two different ways: one using sewing techniques and one using quilting techniques. The result is two unique looks from a single pattern.

  • Provides an excellent stepping-off point for sewers learning to quilt, and quilters learning to sew
  • Chic projects, well-styled photos, and modern illustrations speak to this increasingly unified audience
  • Good, basic, understandable instructions

If you're a quilter experimenting with sewing, or vice versa, the beautiful designs in With Fabric & Thread give you everything you need to bring these two crafts together to make unique and inspired projects.

    I had pre-ordered this book so I could have it as soon as it hit

    I had pre-ordered this book so I could have it as soon as it hit the stores. It is very well written and beautifully photographed. The way it she has organized the chapters is perfect. I really appreciated Joanne highlighting the similarities and differences in sewing and quilting with easy to follow patterns that cover both areas. I can not wait to start my projects! Usually with craft/art books, I browse through and read only the sections that catch my eye, with this book, I have read the whole thing! I highly recommend purchasing this book, it is a must have for anyone who loves fabric, sewing and/or quilting!
