Book: Patchwork Embroidery

Book cover

I have been so busy I forgot to share the news!

The latest Aimee Ray’s book Patchwork Embroidery was released in November.

I contributed 3 projects to the book. The projects were designed by me, Aimee provided the art work and I made the items. All the projects have a patchwork component as well as embroidery.

Have a look at my projects. Which one do you like best?

This one is my favourite and the easiest to make of the 3.

The book is beautiful, as all Aimee’s books are. I totally recommend it – disclaimer: I’m not making any money out of this book because I made the projects on commission.
