We’re thrilled to have Gail as a guest writer today to tell us more about her much-anticipated second book. Welcome, Gail!


Gail-PanHi, I’m Gail and I’m so excited to share with you my new book, Christmas Patchwork Loves Embroidery. Anyone who knows me knows I love Christmas! And with this book I’m able to share with you all the things I love about it. From reindeer to Santa to adorable elves, there’s something for everyone. Of course I had to include my cute little birds as well.

Here in Australia it’s summer at Christmastime. No snow for us! But that doesn’t stop us from decorating with all the usual Christmas themes. I love to hang quilts on the walls, set the table with Christmas-themed runners and toppers, and prop myself up on the couch with a cute cushion. In Christmas Patchwork Loves Embroidery, you’ll find all of these projects to make for your home.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match embroidery elements. The motifs from the wall quilt would look fantastic on the table runner, or use them on the stockings. It’s entirely up to you!

The projects in Christmas Patchwork Loves Embroidery also make great gifts. In my sewing group we exchange “secret Santa” gifts and I think it’s awesome to give a gift handmade with love, like my Comfort and Joy Card Holder.

I’ve used an assortment of red, green, and cream fabrics, including reproduction fabrics, so you don’t necessarily need to use Christmas theme prints. And if you like a different colorway for Christmas, then let your imagination take you there!

I hope you enjoy the projects in the book and don’t forget to share what you’ve made! It’s wonderful to see show-and-tell projects, and it inspires others when they see what you’ve made.

Happy Christmas stitching!
