Amy isn’t the only one in the Butler family with quilting chops! You’ll love these projects, made from large swathes of fabric big enough for a little instant gratification (as much as a quilt can lend itself to instant gratification) but interesting enough to keep you thinking. Just playing with color and fabric choices will multiply your quilting possibilities. Try Project 14 (Bullseye Quilt) in neutrals or monochrome for a modern feel, or go with rainbow for a fun color wheel! This is sure to be a new favorite on your bookshelf. 

— Megan


Quilting gets a rustic modern treatment in this 20-project sewing book that celebrates American trade quilts, with touches of Native and early American influences. The timeless style of these DIY designs will inspire quilters of every skill level to make cozy style statements for their home or office. Clear, step-by-step instructions detail how to use inventive techniques such as coffee staining and bleaching to achieve a perfectly distressed vintage feel, while dozens of helpful diagrams and photographs make these projects even more accessible. From a stunning Navajo blanket to a World's Fair design comprising international antique flags, this compilation is ideal for anyone looking to create gorgeous quilts and blankets in the spirit of a bygone era.
