I Love Patchwork: 21 Irresistible Zakka Projects to Sew by Rashida Coleman-Hale. Interweave Press (December 1, 2009).
Rashida Coleman-Hale writes an inspiring blog at Iheartlinen where she showcases her linen and patchwork sewn goods. I fell in love with this blogs minimal style and so was excited to see that she has written a book. The book has a definite Japanese aesthetic, with simple sweet projects, a minimal style incorporate natural materials and cute fabrics.
The projects in the book are mostly simple – with a few suitable for more advanced sewists, but none really that are too hard. As you might guess from the title the projects are patchwork based – but not necessarily quilts – there are cushions, toys and aprons and a couple of simple quilted throws.
I will let the pics do the talking as they are lovely too!
