This handbook is the result of what I dreamt of being in my ideal handbook to help me to organise my projects – those I am wanting to start, those that I need to finish and a record of all the projects I have finished. A place to record all the tools and notions I have collected over the years and where they are kept. Basically, I was looking for a customised book that would be used and not left part empty due to unusable pages/templates.
The handbook has designed templates which are framed and enhanced with hand drawn and painted pictures in a quilting theme to truly make the folder/book look special and not just printed out sheets struck into a folder or file. The finished look of the handbook ensures that it would not look out of place on any bookcase or craft room.
The handbook also has a section on the basic references to help you with your sewing and quilting like tension issues, guide to pre-cuts and measurements, along with a great section on how to make up the commonly known blocks like flying geese, half square triangles and square in a square and a quick maths chart so you can cut the correct size each time. There really is no searching online to be done and they are all kept in the same place.
The beauty with this handbook is that you only need to purchase the pages and section that you wish – it truly is a pick and mix. The pages and sections are designed to fit into a handmade ring bound book which is covered in a lovely book cover featuring needlework which is a design that is used throughout the book as well as a lovely, pieced block to really set it off beautifully.
