Book Description

Sewing guru Wendy Gardiner brings you this comprehensive guide to sewing with fat quarters. Delve into a brilliant techniques section, guiding you through a variety of essential techniques, from inserting a zip and sewing buttonholes to creating patchwork. Each is fully explained and combined with easy-to-follow step-by-step photography.

Once you have brushed up on your sewing skills it's time to get sewing. Choose from 15 inspiring projects: from doorstops and drawstring bags to tablemats, aprons and cushions. Each fun fat-quarter project contains colourful photographs, instructive hand-drawn illustrations and a stash of handy hints and tips. Whether you have treated yourself to a fat quarter bundle or are using up leftover fabric, there is a project for you. Full-size traceable templates are supplied at the back of the book.
