I read just a few pages and already knew it was a book to make my heart sing and my mind spin in excited and creative ways.Â This is not your ordinary quilt publication!Â Â It is packed with awesome photographs (Melissaâ€™s own photography), refreshing ideas, inspiring writing, clear and concise directions and techniques; and I am not sure how Melissa accomplished it, but she has joy and smiles tucked everywhere in this amazing book.
The sewing projects range from numerous appealing quilt projects….
…to the cleverest bag made from a sweater that I have ever seen.
It gets even better from here, there are scrumptious recipes like triple chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese
…cross stitch and embroidery, home decorating ideas and organizing tips, and loads of inspiration.
My conundrum at this point is deciding how many copies I need as gifts for friends (both quilters and non quilters!)Â Extra copies will insure that I donâ€™t have to loan my copy out, since it is my favorite bedtime read and my morning coffee break read.Â To summarize, I now have several projects on my to-do list and while I am writing this, the triple chocolate cupcakes are in the oven baking.
