Today we are looking at Quilts with a Spin: 7 New Projects from Piece O’Cake Designs by Becky Goldsmith & Linda Jenkins. I got this one because I saw a picture of a quilt made from this book that I fell in love with; I just don’t remember where or when. What I do know is that finding this book is a bit tricky since it is out of print, except for the Amazon Print on Demand which is where I purchased it (and where the following Amazon Associate link will take you). I ordered the Print on Demand Edition because when I ordered it a few months ago, the used copies were just as expensive as the Print on Demand Edition. That does not appear to be the case right now, though. I guess I should have waited.
The quilts in this book have a lot of round or spinning-looking elements. I’m pretty sure that the quilt I fell in love with was the first one in the book, Whirlygig. (And to make it, I am seriously going to have to learn how to appliqué!) There are a couple of others I’d be interested in making and many many elements I can see myself using once I learn to … you know.
The sections of this book are:
- Basic Supplies
- For Your Information (information about fabrics, fabric prep and seams)
- The Seven Projects
- General Appliqué Instructions (covers both machine and fusible)
- Special Techniques
- About the Authors
I keep collecting these appliqué books. I probably should start someday!
