Quilting From Little Things Tour

I am honored to be included on this blog tour along with such a diverse and talented line
 up of fellow bloggers.
Thank you, Sarah for including me.
I have known Sarah and her family for many years. Her passion for quilting
and teaching has always been apparent in everything she touches.
Material Obsession by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke
.
Sarah's first two books, Material Obsession one and two,  hold treasured spots on my bookshelf
and I can't wait to add her newest, self published title, Quilting From Little Things.



 

Sarah's newest book, Quilting From Little Things, is a feast for the eyes with
brightly colored quilts, brilliant photography and
close-up detailed pictures.

Click here for a look.

You may wonder about the name of the book....Quilting From Little Things.
Sarah's passion for teaching continues in this book by clear detailed illustrations and instructions to make a "dolly quilt."
Sarah teaches a new technique, how to practice it and accomplish the technique
 by making a small doll quilt. Then move on to using the same technique
to make a larger version with your new skill set.

The techniques include projects from beginners to advanced including
 paper piecing,
 foundation piecing, set- in seams
 and more.


This quilt is my current obsession.
Feathered stars have always been on my to do list.

Funny Story:
I had a piece of paper hanging on the wall behind my sewing machine with all of my UFO's. On the top of the page, I had written, TO DO LIST.
Sometime, I am not quite sure when, my husband had added the words... in this lifetime. Do you have a to do list of quilts you want to make that is longer than any one lifetime?

This quilt has moved up my perpetual quilt...to do list.
I am actually waiting for a new Christmas 2012 fabric line to arrive any minute
 because this is the quilt I am going to make.

One more comment about Sarah and the quilts in this book.
Sarah's color sense and combination of fabrics is inspiring. There is an international flair
(after all she is from Australia) to the combination  of scale, color and design.

Ask for this book at your favorite independent quilt retailer.


Thank you for stopping by, now hop on over to see what the prolific Monica has to say...

  2. I have ordered the book and am anxiously awaiting its delivery. I can't wait to try these small blocks out and who knows, maybe make a big version. Thanks for the blog hop. It's a great way to find great new books.
