Product description

Get fresh inspiration with 19 quick and colorful projects! In Patchwork, Please!, Stitch magazine contributor Ayumi Takahashi has created playful and practical patchwork projects for the home and the people who live in it. Sewing should be fun, and Ayumi Takahashi's patchwork projects embody that happy, playful approach. Known for both her distinctive combination of patterned fabrics and her quirky interpretations of vintage style, Ayumi brings this signature approach to 19 sewing projects. The book begins with basic techniques in patchwork, paper piecing, raw-edged applique, and machine and hand embroidery. Then it's straight into an appealing assortment of projects for the kitchen, home, family, and friends. Along the way, Ayumi shares her passion for color and pattern and even demonstrates how to create unique patterns by scanning and transferring images onto fabric for a truly personal touch.
