Fat Quarterly Issue 6 is out!

And I'm in it! Yay!

I was so happy to be asked to contribute to the Designer's Challenge in the latest issue of Fat Quarterly. It was a Churn Block challenge, and I so enjoyed coming up with variations on the block (which I've also heard referred to as the Monkey Wrench, thus my monkey theme).

I turned my blocks into a soft baby book. More of my step-by-step process can be found in FQ issue 6 in the Designer Challenge, starting on page 39. And, as always, the rest of the issue is filled with wonderful project ideas and inspiration. I really enjoy this sewing e-zine.

If I inspire you to make a soft baby book like mine, I'd love to see it! You can share in the Fat Quarterly Flickr pool and in my Wendymoon Designs Flickr pool. Happy sewing!

I love the idea of quilt blocks as pages, and with monkeys to boot--well done! Hooray for cloth books!!

Victoria, thanks for the kind comment! My little quilt block book seems simple compared to the gorgeous books you do. But cloth books of all kinds are great! :-)
