I told you I'd have another book giveaway this week!
The very talented Ms. Averinos from Yummy Goods, wrote this little gem that features your fat quarter stash. Her design aesthetic is very different from mine, which is great, because it makes me try new things. Her sewing techniques tend to be very free form, so it is a great opportunity to experiment with new ideas and think outside my little sewing box.
And check out my favorite project of all.
Sassy Shoelaces. She even has a solution of how to finish the ends that is C.L.E.V.E.R. However, I won't tell you what it is- you'll have to buy the book. :-)
And look at what that clever girl wore at Quilt Market?
She said she has always collected vintage spools of thread and what a clever idea to show them off.
Okay, so now to the giveaway. Leave a comment on this post by Thursday, June 17 at noon (CDT) and tell me how you like to sew. Do you 1) follow the instructions obsessively regardless of what they say, 2) only look at the instructions AFTER you get into trouble, 3) follow the instructions for a while and then take off on your own?
I go in spells-- sometimes I am obsessive about following the instructions to a T, but if I get in a hurry or feel lazy or ornery, I just go for it however I want to.
