The photography is stunning! I love projects that combine embroidery, applique and patchwork. Don’t you want to redecorate and make these projects the focus of an entire floor – let alone a room???

In her words: This book has 9 projects including an applique and paper-pieced main quilt – The Blue Quilt, a paper-pieced hexagon quilt, an applique Baltimore style block quilt, needlebook, pincushions, purse, pillow, bag, and an applique and stitchery wallhanging. An optional center block for the main quilt is also provided – with the work LOVE instead of BLUE.

Wouldn’t this make a great nursery??? The muted colors will lull anyone to sleep!

 

What is Red and White and Embroidered All Over?

Natalie Bird has created a variety of whimsical designs that add a whole new twist to Cottage Chic!  Combining embroidery with simple piecing creates nostalgic projects that are sure to make you smile!

Every project has that awe factor.  Whether it is putting a new take on a traditional penny rug; adding wide rickrack to a tote; creating the perfect shape on a pin cushion to accent the design to its best advantage; or adding tiny touches of embroidery to a framed miniature to add texture and detail, this book has it all.

This book is expected to arrive the first week of January – just in time for Valentine’s Day!
