I’m definitely still new to the world of sewing. I love to do it, but I have a lot to learn. I’m taking a class, reading lots of books, and mostly just experimenting. These are the books in my collection that inspire me.

Amy Butler’s In Stitches. I love her fabrics, and this has some very clever projects.

Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol. I love her blog Angry Chicken.

Denyse Schmidt Quilts has lots of projects that inspire me. Maggie’s Coasters are based on a project in this book, I just added 2 more strips of fabric.

Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. She owns Purl and Purl Patchwork, where I’m taking my sewing class. She has great taste, and her projects are right up my alley.
