Last-Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts

My friend, Jen, was able to get me a advance copy of Last-Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts. The book has beautiful photos and a lot of great projects. One of my favorites is the wall quilt called, Someone to Watch Over You. I have already bought the fabric so I can make one for my baby. I still do not know the gender of the baby yet, but I chose brown and green for the wall quilt.

Here are a few pictures of the projects from the book. There are a total of 30 projects in the book and they are organized by the amount of time it takes to complete them, just like Last-Minute Knitted Gifts. It's another great book by Joelle Hoverson. Enjoy the pictures and have a nice Labor Day weekend!

Oh my gosh, you lucky dog! (which is what my friends and I used to exclaim as kids when one of us lucked out) I can't believe you got an advanced copy! But you're so kind to quench our curiosity by posting pics...it all looks very inspiring.

Look at all those beautiful projects!

I have to ask...is that darling little white puppy yours?

Mom2fur said...

Oh! I just checked out your sewing category and see that little cutie is your dog! He's a bit of a chihuahua, right?

Oiyi said...

-mom2fur, yes Napoleon is half Chihuahua (his dad). His mom is a Lhasa Apso/Pomeranian.
