Alabama Stitch Book

I know, I know...I have posted about this book
or it's author
or a project from it
time and time again...

I can't help myself.
I love this book.

I adore the sheer beauty of the simple fabric
and the simple thread.

The brilliance of the way that the two are joined together.

It's just beautiful.

I posted a while back that I was making a project from the book.

And I did -
I finished it just in time to wear to the Asheville Quilt Show!

I made the Reverse-Applique Swing Skirt from the pattern in the book.

It was a BIG hit!

I'll post a few pictures of the skirt -sans Carol- for the moment.
Maybe said skirt + Carol photo will come later...

i am so intrigued by this method of sewing. it looks like there are 2 layers of cloth and you cut holes in one and then stitch around the holes. i'm off to find what i can on this on the web. i'm looking forward to seeing your skirt!!!!
