purl soho is a new york based fabric/pattern
and then... well isn't it funny how this book arrived in the post just a week or so later?
last minute patchwork + quilted gifts is by joelle hoverson, and the owner of purl. oh my this book is a beauty. ranging from less-than-2-hours, to more-than-12-hours, there is some kind of patchwork to make for everyone. i've already made a handful of the flannel baby blankets... so easy yet so so beautiful! (and they turn out just like the picture - that never happens!!)
this book (thankfully) also has detailed instructions. so the amatuer quilter in me can fumble through without having to call my mum!
quilting is a pretty special thing, isn't it? i still remember going to a grade one sleepover at school... all the kids had sleeping bags. i had a quilt my mum had made for me. and i still have it.
