This book is for all those longing to have more time to sew but [who]can't seem to find the time. Kathleen brings us 14 portable projects in the book. If you pull together a "go bag" you will be able to stitch and finish these darling projects while on the run using the time you spend in waiting rooms, lunch rooms, trains, planes, or cars to satisfy your need to stitch! Kathleen presents us with a unique "Double Stitch" technique. Using a simple running stitch you will be able to sew by hand to join patchwork pieces and create the look of hand quilting at the same time. The projects range from table runners, pillows and a 72" x 93" quilt that features applique set on 10" blocks. The smaller projects would make perfect gifts for family and friends. There is even a section in the book on how to frame your work yourself should you not want to take it to a professional framer. With lots of photos, diagrams and easy to read instructions to inspire you it won't be long before you will find yourself making use of valuable "stitching time" while waiting... and waiting... and waiting.
Kathleen Brown has been sewing for many years and quilting since 1980. In that time, she's lived and traveled all across the United States. She became a pattern designer in 2003 and began designing for her cherished business, Mountain Patchwork. While she loves all kinds of quilting, Kathleen is especially passionate about taking some sewing along at all times, having found that a few idle minutes here and there can really make a difference in completing a project. She loves designing patterns that can be constructed with Double Stitch.Visit Kathleen's website
