Sew Red

Sew Red is here!!  I'm so excited to be a part of this wonderful project, created and compiled by the amazing Laura Zander of Jimmy Beans Wool

Sew Red by Laura Zander.

From Amazon:  This beautiful follow-up to Knit Red features stunning designs from more than 25 top sewing and quilting celebrities, along with three 28 x 40 black-and-white pattern sheets. But this is more than a book of breathtaking projects: it's part of Stitch Red, a campaign started by Jimmy Beans Wool founder Laura Zander to educate women about heart disease and help them take charge of their heart health. Each showcased designer—including Amy Butler, Denyse Schmidt, Anna Maria Horner, Ty Pennington, and Kaffe Fassett—shares his or her experience with heart disease and offers tips for staying healthy.

We were all asked to come up with a project using red fabrics.  I used two prints from my Grand Hotel collection.  And since this book was focusing on heart health, I designed these placemats with built-in napkin holders-- I figured these would look great with your healthy meals!
