Your quilting can be even more inspirational than you had originally thought. When you're having trouble picturing the look of your next quilt pattern, open up Needles and Notions Paper-Pieced Patterns with a Sewing Room Theme for a series of realistic quilt patterns featuring your favorite quilting tools. Even if you've never worked with a paper piecing pattern before, author Jaynette Huff has included patterns and instructions that are accessible to all skill levels. You'll have everything you need to make and embellish a quilt pattern that will be perfect for your crafting space.

Paper piecing isn't a simple process, and thankfully, Needles and Notions lays out the basics in the beginning so quilters can either get a nice refresher or get their first look into what they'll need to do. Not only does Huff go over the standard fabrics and terminology used for paper piecing, but she also gives a very detailed rundown of how to read the directions included in the book. For more advanced quilters, there are also plenty of instructions and figures for "finishing touches" like embellishments and binding that provide ample challenges.

Whether you want to start small with a quilt block or move right into full-sized patterns, you'll find a paper piecing pattern to work with here. There are fourteen quilt block designs that depict all of the tools you may be using on these same patterns! You can make your very own "Sewing Machine" (pg. 44), "Rotary Cutter" (pg. 38), and more, and depict an impressive realism with the embellishments suggested for each one. If you want to use these designs for larger-scale projects, all you need to do is flip to the section on quilts (pg. 58), which will give you eight ways to mix and match the blocks included.

Needles and Notions is sure to be one of the books you're constantly reaching for within your library, and the patterns within it will be brand new ways for you to show off your love of quilting with your designs.
