I ordered A Quilter’s Mixology a couple of months ago and it has been begging me to make something from it ever since. I buy a lot of craft books but most of them are flicked through a few times and then parked on the shelf. This one however spoke to me. I loved learning a perfect foolproof technique and for piecing curved seams and I love pretty much all the projects in it.

The quilt projects are in many different styles but it is thoroughly modern in it’s outlook. So be the project quite Moorish or very 60s Mod, the fabrics are funky and colourful and the photography is lush.

I got cracking on a simple four patch yesterday and loved making it. It wasn’t a pattern from the book as such as I just wanted something small and quick to try out the curved seam technique. I didn’t even have an end goal in sight. As it was I made a small (bit too squishy!) cushion with it. But I digress.

Stitching the curved seam was super easy. I loved it and it was pretty addictive! I snappily made four and slung em together with a simple envelope back.

Now I’m ready to tackle a bigger quilt. Which one though??
