Amy Butler's Piece Keeping
20 Stylish Projects that Celebrate Patchwork
I am thrilled that San Francisco based Chronicle Books invited me to host the blog tour for Amy Butler's new book - Piece Keeping. During our recent trip to India I had first hand experienced her passion for crafts and attention to details. Needless to say I was curious to see the projects in the book and try my hand at making one or two myself.
Choose sewing and patchwork projects or design your home with headboards, pillows or a lamp shades. For those of you who are into personal styling, there are projects including patchwork dress and scarves or statement jewelry like belt, necklace or appliqued tribal hand cuffs.
Each chapter is filled with in depth instructions, full patterns for every project and detailed information about themes and techniques that inspired the projects.
As soon as I saw the pictures of Charming Garland, I knew I had to make it. Once I started selecting fabrics and making those circles, I didn't want to stop!
Step by step instructions made it easy to follow the pattern and execute the design.
It's all in the details! How fun are these tassels?
And here are my niece's charming six months old twins! I think the garland will look perfect in their nursery.
Check out this video on my Instagram to see it swirl. What a clever design! They will be certainly entertained by it.
Now you can make one too!
