I don’t know about you, but I’m always the teensiest bit glad when summer starts winding down. For me, these last few days of high temperatures mean I’ll be looking forward to gorgeous fall leaves (love ya, Blue Ridge Mountains!), better hair days (sayonara, humidity!), and cozy nights wrapped up in something warm.
For novices like me, Simple Contemporary Quilts: A Beginner’s Guide to Modern Quiltmaking is the perfect way to try my hand at crafting something to combat those chilly nights just around the corner. And—score!—as of Friday, the book just happens to be on sale for 60% off!
Simple Contemporary Quilts presents 20 gorgeous projects with a modern spin—no frumpy, outdated designs here! No expensive or complicated equipment is required, and the techniques you’ll use are easy and traditional.
But wait—there’s more! For absolutely free, you can download a PDF of “Tumbling Leaves.” You’ll have fun at the fabric store choosing your own interesting and unique fabrics to create the quilt’s leaves, and when you’re done, you can snuggle up under its comfy layers with—hmmm—another sewing project, perhaps?
