Book review: Whizz Bang!
Rachaeldaisy ignited the imagination of quilters when she won Best of Show at the Sydney Quilt Show in 2016 with her colourful and energetic folded fabric blocks. Now you can share in the excitement and make some folded fabric blocks of your very own! This is Rachaeldaisy’s first book and in it she shares how to make her folded fabric circle blocks that are composed of Prairie Points but made of all types of fabrics from taffeta and silk organza to recycled shirts, hankies and linen. The blocks are then embellished with ric rac, buttons, dollies and more!
Rachaeldaisy says about the book, “I love making these blocks! Besides the beautiful, mesmerizing results it’s the joy of the journey as well. I encourage you to be adventurous and have fun experimenting with your blocks to make them different from each other.”
The book includes 15 projects and 10 variations of the block. With clever and helpful tips and tricks from Rachaeldaisy you’ll be hitting your stash and sewing up a storm in no time!
