Book of the Month July 2023: Hand-Stitched Quilts by Carolyn Forster
Our Book of the Month for July is Hand-Stitched Quilts by Carolyn Forster. Through a series of ‘bite-size’ lessons, you will learn how to cut out your fabrics with and without templates, how to sew your patches together, and then get stuck into sewing a gorgeous library of blocks! There are 27 different blocks to make, each with its own piecing instructions, piecing diagrams, and helpful photographs that show the front and back of the block. Templates for every block are included at the back of the book, at full size.
