Am I a fussy cutter? Eh... not exactly. While I enjoy some aspects of fussy cutting, I don't lose sleep if directional fabric patches aren't all pointing in the same direction. So with some trepidation, I purchased Angie Wilson's Fussy Cutter's Club. Was this going to be a book I would enjoy? Would I be bombarded with all sorts of bizarre rules that would go against my frugal nature and turn all of my fabric into something resembling Swiss cheese? Would this turn out to be the Quilt Police Handbook in disguise? None of the above! Angie's easy-going writing style put me at ease from the first page. She tells us there is no right and wrong. She tells us this isn't a definitive guide to fussy cutting, but is an attempt to share her adventures in fussy cutting. The book is presented as a series of 14 projects using modern fabric, each focusing on different techniques, from EPP to improvisational piecing. If you are looking for a project-based book to introduce you to the world of fussy cutting with modern fabrics (rather than a reference-style book), then take a look at the Fussy Cutter's Club.
