Very appropriate to the season, I recently read our dear friend Allie Aller's new book Crazy Quilting: Modern Piecing and Embellishing Techniques for Joyful Stitching, which is a happy bowl of eye candy and practical skill-building instruction.
The book is beautifully photographed, and has clear and precise tips and instructions on a number of fresh approaches to crazy quilting. In addition, it's a homage to the friendships among stitchers in the on-line community. We see contributions from Susan Elliot, who has posted tutorials here and here for her beautiful queen project. There are are also contributions from Debra Spincic, and...
...yes! From me too! My St. Therese quilt is in the gallery. If you'd like to see process photos for how I made this quilt, the links are tabbed under "St Therese" in the sidebar and they're right here too.
Also appropriate to the season, I finished this lovely shawlette, which is from Stephen West's popular pattern Pagona, knit some some inexpensive Deborah Norville sock yarn. The design is very attractive and not hard at all to knit. Just a little something to throw over the neck, just in time for Spring.
