It's been Craft Book Month over at Craft Buds, and I have a little something to share. I've shared this project before, a few weeks ago, but didn't really talk much about the book that the inspiration came from. I loved the book "Quilting Modern" by Katie Pedersen and Jacquie Gering since I first saw it. So many of the projects are ones that I would love to make, but this is the type of book that doesn't give you exact measurements to follow - more so, it gives you techniques and project ideas and yes, patterns, but there's a fair bit of improv involved! I feel like I'm in the unfortunate category of those to whom improv does not come naturally; I wish it did!! Craft Book Month gave me the little push to start taking baby steps, and I came up with this:
Which became this sketchbook cover:
I used the "stitch & flip" method described in "Quilting Modern", and since we're talking baby steps for me here, I'll shamelessly admit that I pretty much copied one of the example layouts on page 103 of the book. :) I LOVE how it turned out, and it wasn't even too painful! ;)
My ultimate goal as far as this particular book goes is the Supernova quilt. It's my absolute favourite project in the book and I can't wait to get a few current projects off my plate so I can give it a whirl.
P.S. If you'd like to read a few more details about the above sketchbook project, see a few more photos and read why I made it, you can visit my original post here.
