I am the mother to three children. Previously, I studied art history and worked as a museum collections curator. I made the choice to say home with my children when my second child was born. I now express my creative side through sewing and pattern design.
Early on, I found time for this “during quiet time” when the kids were napping or at least enjoying some quiet in their rooms. Nowadays, I sew while they are at school.
Love to create repeating blocks in your quilts but tired of the same patterns? Step away from the ordinary and try your hand at a new technique-based approach to improvisation. Gorgeous photographs illustrate 10 beautiful projects where Amy Friend seamlessly bridges the gap between improvised design and technical execution.
The perfect fabric can make-or-break a quilt design. Teaches you to take your time to make thoughtful fabric choices before you begin piecing for truly dynamic results, the intentional piecing method doesn’t strive just for the finish line. Instead, you’ll learn to focus on precise, thoughtful work.
