This little (8 x 8 inch) book, Fat Quarters; Small Fabrics, More Than 50 Big Ideas, is just packed with wonderful, creative and inspirational stitched projects! Amanda Caretsio and the entire Lark Crafts team did an amzaing job pulling this book together ... Bravo Team! It's a must have and a go to kind of book for those of us that collect Fat Quarters! Yup ... I love the size of a Fat Quarter!
Also, not going to lie, I had the amazing opportunity to contribute a handful of projects to this book! Oh and ... I actually lived with and handled every projects while photographing this book! You guessed it ... I fell in love with so many of the projects ... All of them were so well constructed ... made my job as photographer, way easy! Thanks to all the designers!
Of course I had favorites projects ... these cone hats are timeless! Too bad my kids are all adults now!
But I think this is one of my favorite photos in the book!
So, something you might not know about me ... I love to create patterns for 3-d things! It's a challenge but I totally love to think in 3-d terms! And I love little birds!
Perched on a mantel or sitting on top of a pile of books on a bookshelf!
And is it just me or do we all LOVE flying geese? Check this out ... Geese flying up the side of a denim skirt! I say YES!
Um ... ok, well ... I have about 15 pounds to loose until this skirt can zip up but stay tuned ... I'm getting there! Seriously I am!
How cute is this? And how easy is this? Pretty darn cute and super duper easy!
So, I love this photo for a few reasons ... Ok, as the photographer you get to pick the models you use to show off the pieces and yup ... that's my baby, Cameron! Oh and ... he loved this tie and said he would definitely wear this tie!
And this Boho bag is a favorite project in the book ... well, the project and the model ... Thanks Monica Mouet!
So as you can see from this very small sampling ... this book is just packed with fun! If you are a beginner or an experienced sewer, there are tons of things you can make with the FAt Quarter stash ... for sure!
