Nothing conveys a feeling of warmth and comfort like the traditional art of patchwork. This book brings patchwork into the twenty-first century with a treasury of projects you can make that are bold, bright, and innovative—yet just as homey and warm as traditional patchwork. The thirty-four projects presented in this book explore the techniques of patchwork sewing, appliqué, and machine quilting and include pouches and handbags, quilts and pillow cases, tissue cases and pot holders, all with a distinctive Scandinavian flair. The projects’ minimalist style, attention to detail, and simple aesthetic speak to our desire to create a warm and authentic life at home.Each project is presented through stunning photographs that exemplify the creative, calming, and enriching qualities of the craft. Detailed diagrams and instructions make each project easy enough to follow for even the beginning sewer.
