Soft & Cozy Keepsakes Faux Rag Quilting
Quilting does not need to be complicated or difficult to be cute. In this book, Soft & Cozy Keepsakes; Faux Rag Quilting, Margo Yang shows how to make cute quilts. This reminds me of chenille, which I have never done, so I am not sure if the technique is similar.
The key to making these quilts is to make and bind a quilt and use that as a canvas to make the faux rag strips to make the design. You then clip the strips to make it rag.
There are 16 projects in this book - 12 quilts, 3 pillows and one tote.
My favorite - the fireworks pillow - looks very simple with the straight lines, but quite striking. The patterns are presented in a CD-ROM.
