I’ve decided to do book reviews a little differently from now on. Usually I do several reviews in one blog post, but then I get bogged down. I think it will be easier for me to do one at a time and maybe it will be easier for you to get tidbits at a time, also making it easier for you to look up a book. So… the title of the blog post is also the title of the book, Celebrate Christmas with that Patchwork Place: 22 Festive Projects to Quilt and Sew.
This book takes a fresh look at Christmas decor with the projects of 13 designers. There are quilts, table runners, mantel covers, stockings, ornaments, an apron and pillows. I have to admit that my favorites are the mantel covers, stockings and ornaments. Here is my favorite mantel cover.
My favorite stocking pattern… the back is made to be the back of the snow person! How cute!
And, aren’t these ornaments adorable? They are embroidered – you know I am loving embroidered stuff lately!
You will find step-by-step instructions and illustrations for quilters and sewists of all skill levels in this book, and you can find the book at Martingale’s site here.
