Today we are thrilled to have the opportunity to share our project + giveaway a copy of our dear friend Samarra Khaja's (you may recognize her as SammyK!) new book Sew Adorkable as a part of her blog tour!
Sew 15 conversation starters, from cheeky wearables (TRAWRzers!) to quirky quilts and home decor. Make a puffy quilt that looks like candy dots, or stitch a tissue box cover that looks like a vintage typewriter. Tailored to smart, talented, crafty folks of all ages, this hilarious book is just as fun to read (trivia time!) as it is chock-full of sewing projects.
For our project, we chose to digitally recreate the braille alphabet quilt. Using Adobe Photoshop we designed our own cheater quilt version to stitch up.
We loved how colorful Samarra's version of the quilt was, so we knew we would love the finished results. We chose to create a design that would fit on two yards of Basic Cotton Ultra. For the back of the quilt, we chose a graphic black and white print created by Charlotte Winter.
To keep things simple, we used the Pillowcase bind and quilted in a grid pattern. This quilt came together in no time and makes the perfect blanket for a special kid (or adult!) in your life!
Eager to get your hands on a copy of Samarra's book? We're giving one lucky winner the chance to take home their very own copy along with two yards of Spoonflower fabric!
Enter by October 26th for a chance to win. The winner will be contacted via email on October 27th, 2015. Good luck!
Take a peek at past tour participants' projects and stay tuned for the few final posts!
