Overview

Calling all fabric lovers! Author, Amy Friend, shows you how to ensure the perfect fabric cuts to achieve fussy-cutting glory. Piecing with intention is all about taking the time to think about how the cut of your fabric will end up appearing in your quilt top or project once the piecing is complete. In each of Amy's 7 quilts and 5 small projects, she takes you beyond just simple fussy cutting and shows you how to work with all of those selvages you have been hoarding, how to work with stripes effectively and how to efficiently cut directional fabrics to yield the perfect focus in your piecing. From pin trays, to bags, to quilts and even embellishing garments, Amy covers traditional piecing, applique and, her favorite, foundation piecing. Use Amy's inspiration to create 12 projects that focus on the beautiful details each of your favorite fabrics has to offer.
