The latest addition to Cath Kidston’s best-selling range of craft titles is Patch!This book presents Cath’s new and innovative take on traditional patchwork, which combines established techniques with a more contemporary approach. Mixing her own distinctive prints with vintage fabrics, Cath has designed 30 original and irresistible projects including not just the pieced quilts that you might expect but also numerous accessories and home furnishings – bags, cushions, pillowcases, even a toddler’s toy ball and a dog bed.
Patchwork, also known as pieced work, simply involves sewing together cut pieces of material to create a larger design, and Cath has broadened the boundaries of conventional patchwork to create projects from vintage embroidered traycloths, striped linen tea towels, and shirting, returning to its origins as a craft born out of thrift at a time when new fabrics were scarce. Many of the projects in this book can be made out of the scraps and leftovers that crafters accumulate, thereby putting all those odds and ends to perfect use. There is a wide range of techniques from simple machine piecing to more complex crazy patchwork, which makes this is a wonderful book not only for beginners but also for advanced sewers who want to tackle more challenging patch projects. To get you started, the book includes pieces of seven different printed fabrics and instructions to create either a calico bag or cushion.
With the clearly written instructions accompanied by explanatory diagrams, and each project shown in detail in colour photographs, Patch! is the worthy successor to the best-selling Make!, Sew! and Stitch.
