Book Review

Sew Gifts with Love is divided into chapters on five different techniques; Paper Pieced Presents, Punched Suede Sensations, Strip Quilting Keepsakes, Enchanting Embroidery, and Photo Transfer Treasures. There is an introduction for each chapter in which the techniques (with clear step-by-step instructions accompanied by diagrams) as well as tools and materials required for the project are covered in depth. Any additional techniques used in the book are illustrated/demonstrated with that associate project (i.e. the embroidery stitches for the Floral Fantasy Picture Frame).

Throughout the book there are helpful hints and tips called Note from Nancy to help you with a particular project or the portion of a technique which your are working on. I like the inclusion of these tips because they give you options that will suit your capabilities as well as benefiting from the author’s experience. Another thing I really like about the content in this book is the wide variety of unique and unusual projects that combine traditional techniques with modern style and would be a welcome gift to anyone who received them.
