Offering a modern approach to traditional fabric design, this charming instructional illustrates how to create sophisticated patchwork projects by combining linen and print fabrics using simple quilting procedures. Presenting a diverse collection of projects--many inspired by the Japanese zakka aesthetic--such as a travel sewing kit, sewing machine cover, table runner, apron, eco bag, towels, calendar, lap quilt, tote bag, pillowcase, and shoulder bag, all designs are fun, functional, and easy to master. Combining sewing, applique, quilting, and patchwork techniques with thoughtful advice on how to select, work with, and care for linen, this colorful handbook is brimming with sophisticated and innovative projects to challenge and inspire both beginning and intermediate sewers and quilters.

Pretty projects but nothing that inspired me to make.

For a craft book, this was pretty lame. I found absolutely no inspiration in it.

Admittedly, sewing scraps do tend to accumulate, but I didn't see any projects in this book to entice me to use some of them up.
