Angela won a copy of 'Girls World' by Jennifer Paganelli. This month, one new member will win a copy of '101 Applique Blocks' by Nancy Brenan Daniel.
Angela says, "Thank you so much for my prize. I have only just recently started sewing again. After leaving
school I worked as a seamstress making soft furnishings, in my spare time I would also make all sorts of other crafty items. Then along came my children
and this all got put on hold. The children are getting older now and I am
finding myself with more time. I have always wanted to have a go at patchwork
and quilting, but after looking at projects in some magazines, found the idea
of a big quilt a bit daunting. Then I spotted the Popular Patchwork handbag
special. After getting this home I couldn’t put it down, I have already made two of the bags, which have quilting and patchwork elements in them, and can’t wait
to start my next project. Since subscribing to the magazine and getting full
access to the web site, and lots of the back issues, I have found a wealth of
information and inspiration. The thing I like best is the variety of projects
not just quilts but anything from a bag to a fabric cupcake."
Thanks Angela, we hope you enjoy your new hobby and your new book!
