Review quote

Issue 8

Thanks to the minimalistic design of the region's interiors, Urban Scandinavian Sewing's projects are easy bits of sewing fun - necklaces, mug cosies and little folk-art gnomes - and with the book divided into makes for winter and 'midsummer', there should be enough to keep you crafting year round. The quilting projects are basic, but wouldn't something like this applique quilt just hit the spot thrown over your IKEA Malm bed? And much like our favourite Swedish department store, the addition of meatballs and lingonberry sauce (and other recipes) make for a delightful little work that sets this book apart. * Quilt Now *
