Reviews

This book features 26 projects involving birds from soft toy birds to embroidery involving birds in the design there is something for everyone. It incorporates techniques such as quilting and embroidery but the projects are suitable for beginners. Some of the birds are decorative and others, like the Bird on Branch Make Up bag or little birds quilt, are functional. Each project has the instructions broken down into a few different steps, from getting the necessary equipment together before you start to cutting the fabric and constructing the bird itself. What I love is that at the start of each project there is a little biography of the contributor along with links to their website/blog/shop so that you can find out more about them, or buy one of the birds if you don't want to make it yourself. At the back of the book you will find pattern pieces and a guide to the embroidery stitches used. -- The Sewing Directory, july 12, 2010 Quilters' favorite C&T Publishing has a new imprint, stash Books, which expands its titles to include general crafting topics. The Design Collectives book series showcases groups of new fabric-craft designers and their work, and this little volume is one of their cutest so far.
