  • Anna Maria's unique take on the basics, including her expert advice on fabric selection and color choices.
  • Project to Decorate: Basket Case, Doodad Pillow, Vintage Button Frames, Fabric is Fine Art, Cut-up Curtains, and Playing Games Quilt
  • Projects to Domesticate: Cup Half Full Apron, Full Contact Cooking Apron, Here’s the Dish Towels, Doggie Dreams Bed, and Just for Kicks Patchwork Ball

  • Projects to Stylize: Off the Cuff, I’ll Have One of Everything Bag, Taxi Tote, Smashing Smock, Sideways Squares Skirt, Bo Peep Skirt, and Prairie Blouse

All of this comes in a luxurious package. The volume is hard cover with a concealed wire binding. It is full color throughout, with thick, rich paper. A bound-in envelope helps readers keep track of the five loose paper patterns that come with the book.

Seems like there are a bunch of these type of books on the market right now. This one is one of my favorites (I check them out at the library to try before I buy.) It has several great project ideas and is inspiring for me. I made the prairie blouse and the Bo Peep skirt (twice, using different fabrics) for my daughter. She loves them and gets lots of compliments. The directions are step-by-step. I've been able to follow the step-by-step directions mostly with success. I did have one setback: with the trim on the shirt, the way it told me to fold it and sew didn't allow me to thread the elastic through when the time came so I had to open it and correct a little, but maybe that was just me having a "duh" moment. My next project is the Fabric as Art. I need large artwork for my new house and large walls and I just can't find anything I like. Here is a great opportunity to make art, exactly as I want it, in the size I want! I can't wait.
