Re: Magazine Giveaway: Threads #171 (February/March 2014)

I have some of the earlier mentioned books, and they are indeed good books, but for me, I can't go past Couture Sewing techniques, by Claire Shaeffer. For classy, beautiful finishes to your garments - whether they are for modern everyday clothing, or special going somewhere outings, they add that touch of class. The Look-at-me finish for my sewing!

Re: Book Giveaway: "Quilt Love"

I made a Japanese wall hanging. I used a panel with two pictures on it, I cut up one picture into squares which I placed around the other whole panel, flowing the colours on from the centre panel. I bound it with gold fabric. The brilliance of the pink blossoms against the green trees, and the dark moon with the white cranes really looked good. I love it. I look for inspiration from books.
