Piecing with intention simply means taking the time to think about how you cut your fabrics and where they will end up appearing in the finished quilt.
From fussy cutting particular design elements from commercially manufactured fabrics to working with selvages and stripes effectively, Amy offers readers unique patterns (quilts, a clutch and even a tote with 10 interchangeable paper piecing patterns to customise perfect for gifting) that feature precise piecing for graphic and sometimes whimsical results.
Fabric is the focus of this book: how to work with your favourite fabrics effectively to achieve the patchwork results you want. Foundation paper piecing is the most effective way to achieve perfect blocks even from the smallest pieces of fabrics, so most of the patterns are created using this method, but there are some traditionally pieced and appliqué projects as well. Amy includes both smaller projects and larger quilts. Truly something for everyone.
