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 fun fat-quarter project contains colourful photographs, instructive hand-drawn illustrations and a stash of handy hints and tips.
