Insights on Quilting & Sewing books

I'm delighted to share insights with you on some fun books for quilters, knitters and sewing enthusiasts all published by Martingale.  And, while I'm not hosting a Fun Friday Giveaway today, I do want to share that each of these books have been added to the prize list for this Sunday's Quilter's Christmas Party and everyone is invited to attend. 

Accent on Angles:  Easy Strip-Set Quilts, by Susan Purney Markis a fun book that shares insights on using strip fabrics and angles to create amazing quilts and other projects.  There are nine projects included in this book which shares fun techniques and easy to follow instructions to make projects in various sizes using strip sets.

Kaleidoscope Paper Piecing: 10 Dynamic Quilt Designs, by Nancy Mahoney has ten fun projects on paper piecing designs to help you create amazing projects with perfect piecing using paper piecing techniques.

Simple Gifts for Dog Lovers, by Catherine Tough. This little book is perfect for anyone that loves little dogs, or wants to make a gift for someone that does. Certainly, the recipients will be the "best dressed" dogs ever. You'll also find fun craft projects like the dog bone "key fob", which would certainly make a great gift for those that love these four legged kids.

Make It Sew Modern: Gather, Twist, Pleat, Texture, by Vanessa Christenson of V and CO. is a fun book that includes a variety of projects from pillows to purses, as well as clothing accessories and home decorating.

Sewing Pottery By Machine, by Barbara Warholic is a great book for anyone interested in making fabric pottery.  Projects include those for beginners, as well as advanced fabric pottery makers.
