So I’ve done this thing…write a book. It’s the life long dream come true via hard work and hours and hours of sewing. And I know that I’ve shared a bit about the book here. You probably know that it is about curved piecing and maybe have seen a sneak peak here or there. But I realized that I have not officially shown you all the projects IN the book. I’ve been waiting so long to share them with you all that I forgot that at some point I would actually be able to show you! lol
So today I’m kicking off a week long showing of all of the projects from my book, A Quilter’s Mixology. I’ll be sharing about 3 projects a day from the book. And each day there will be an opportunity to win a copy of the book and other fun prizes along the way…just to celebrate! I hope you’ll join me each day to see the quilts and hopefully be inspired to start sewing some curves.
I love all of my quilts. Truly I do. So it’s hard to know where to start. But since you’ve seen the book cover, I will go ahead and start there, with Orange Twist.
This quilt is my personal homage to Anna Maria Horner and her gorgeous fabrics. Each print is a different design of hers spanning across multiple years and lines. I used a Sizzix die cutter to help make quick work of cutting the charms I used. As a block based quilt, this can be made as small or as large as you would like. But I will warn you that this is some heavy work…each block is a curved block in this quilt. But you can’t beat how timeless it is.
