Maggie found an old quilt.
From this quilt she has been inspired to design
and write this book.

She has brought together an amazing mix of projects
with a theme and colours running through them. 
I can honestly say I just love looking at this book.
It has such warmth and homely feel about it.

I love her use of natural materials and different techniques
to design projects that are simply inspirational.

I can honestly say that I want to make everything
in this book.
I love the muted tones that bring each of the
projects together.

I don't think the book is for a beginner sewer/quilter
but if you are already a sewer/quilter I am sure
you will enjoy this book.

Each of the projects has a materials list
and instructions for cutting the project
and how to assemble it.

At the back of the book patterns of each
of the projects.
There is a fantastic mix of projects to make;
  • Thistle Down Moon Wool Mat
  • Thistle Down Moon Hooked Rug
  • Anna of Bellingham, 1812, Sampler
  • Think-of-Me Heart Sewing Case
  • Old Velvet Pincushions
  • Sweet Velvet Peapod Pinkeep
  • Wall-Hung Sewing Necessity
  • Penny-Topped Stools
  • Little Pocket Necklace
  • Easy Folded Linen Pocket
  • My Little Hanging Garden
  • Butcher's Apron
  • Four Garden Pillows
  • Flowerbed Quilt
  • One Old Flower on Wool Pillow
  • Flowers on the Windowsill Wool Mat
  • Wood Frame
  • Remains of the Day Tablerunner

I love this book.
The designs of the pages and the pictures
reflect the beautiful look of the projects.
The projects bring such a feeling of home
in them.
They have such a simple look to them but with
such a beautiful picture of nature.

Maggie has used a mix of materials
to create a unique look that runs
right through the book.

The feeling throughout the book
is a feeling of nature, peace and beauty.

A truly thoughtful and beautiful book.
