Amy Friend is an award-winner quilter and a former museum curator. A member of the Modern Quilt Guild, Amy enjoys paper piecing and modern quilt design. She blogs at www.duringquiettime.com.
Position, position, position - fussy cutting mindfulness leads to quilting with interesting motifs. Choosing fabric is paramount and you can follow Amy's questions to ensure you select the best fabric for the job. Sew a variety of projects given in the book to practice Amy's piecing techniques. The projects are useful and interesting. I particularly like the 'My Tribe' quilt but there are also bags, pillows, an applique cardigan and more to make. Templates are given at the back of the book, but are nor full-size, so you will need to enlarge.* Karen Platt -yarnsandfabrics.co.uk *
We live for fabric so we want to do each of our prints justice when we use them in projects. Amy Friend's new book, Intentional Piecing, is focused solely on making those designs really shine. From fussy cutting to FPP, she takes us through the best techniques for each kind of fabric, teaching mindful project planning and best print picking practice.* Love Patchwork and Quilting *
