Intentional Piecing

I am so happy to be sharing the new book by my friend, Amy, "Intentional Piecing".  She is a talented artist and designer and you can find her paper piecing blocks and quilts on her blog [HERE]

"Intentional Piecing" focuses on helping quilters in making fabric choices when they are creating a quilt or sewing project.

An excerpt from the publisher's website describes her book best:
"Amy teaches you to ask the questions she consistently asks herself: What fabric would make the design better? Which design and method would best showcase the fabric? What choices would make the project uniquely yours? And who doesn't love going through their fabric stash to find that perfect one!"

Amy asked her quilting and sewing friends to make a "Tell Me a Story Block".  It is a paper pieced block that is designed to frame a favorite fabric image that tells a story. 
I dug through my stash and corralled all my sewing theme fabric to the story of
"A girl who has loved to sew since she was little."

I couldn't make just one block - there will be more to go with these!

If you would like to quilt along, Amy is extending a discount of 30% on her book through the Lucky Spool Website.   Just use the code FRIEND30

Share a "Tell me a Story" quilt block on Instagram before June 1st, and you will be eligible to win the "fussy cutting" fabric stack from Sew Me a Song shown above!
  Be sure to tag your picture with the hashtags #TellMeaStoryQuilt and #IntentionalPiecingBook  for your chance to win.

Happy Sewing!
