Christmas at Cowslip is a compilation of the best festive sewing projects from Jo Colwill’s two books Cushions and Quilts and Patchwork Quilts and Gifts.
This collection of festive projects is the perfect resource for all your seasonal sewing. Whether you are making gifts for friends and family or sewing decorations for your own home, Christmas at Cowslip will get you in the holiday mood. Choose from patchwork and applique projects for cushions, pillows and small and large quilts. There is even an advent calendar so the little (and not so little) people in your life can count down the days until Christmas day.
The projects are a combination of different techniques including simple patchwork, more advanced piecing, various applique techniques, hand and machine quilting and some additional hand embroidery. Some of the projects, such as the Scandinavian Horses pillow cover, are suitable for beginners, while others, like the Christmas Countdown and the Scandinavian Journey quilt, are suitable for more advanced sewers. Jo’s patchwork style is very distinctive because she uses lots of applique, both fusible web applique and hand needle-turn applique.
Instructions for both techniques are included so you can choose the style you prefer. Jo uses lots of recycled fabrics for the smaller applique designs and you can have lots of fun choosing scraps of your favourite fabrics to incorporate into the designs. There are step-by-step instructions and artworks for all the projects and the templates are included at full size as digital downloads so you can print them out and get started immediately.
