  • Remembering those we’ve lost, and empowering those of the future

Stitching Stolen Lives is an in-depth look at the mission and work of the Social Justice Sewing Academy Remembrance Project. Together, we remember the lives lost due to racial injustices, with an in-depth sharing of their story. The SJSA compiled extraordinary portrait art quilts that memorialize the individuals and say their names, over and over. SJSA also works with young adults and teens to help find their voice through the art of fabric and quilting, shown through student gallery photography. By working with SJSA, students learn how to cut fabric and make quilt blocks, and along the way, find the strength to express the systemic problems that plague their everyday life through their artwork. This book shares stories and insight into the lives lost and the long overlooked, heartrending truths shared by teens and young adults. Featuring forewords by Hillary Rodham Clinton and Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr.

    This wonderful book features patterns for 18 sewn and photographed quilts. But those 18 quilts are just the starting point. Singular Stars has everything you need to make an additional 163 variations of the photographed quilts. And those 163 variations are also just a starting point as they represent a tiny fraction of the thousands of quilts possible with this incredible volume! Rather than make Lone Stars of concentric rings of diamonds, Judy realized that by making each of the 8 star arms in 4 asymmetrical sections, she could play with the orientation and the arrangement of each section to create a seemingly limitless number of possibilities. (Think of how you can play with Log Cabin blocks before you assemble the quilt. Now with Judy's designs it's possible to do the same with Lone Stars.) Some of the Lone Stars vary the sizes of the diamonds within the block, thus creating some lovely effects. Another category of Lone Stars plays with the placement of color within a regular block, which allows you to get a lot of interesting looks. Plus, related sizes allow you to mix and match many of the border or background elements to offer even more possibilities. Of course, if you prefer, you can simply follow the pattern and make a gorgeous quilt just like you see in the photograph. Judy Martin uses her half-century of quilt-making experience to give quilters the ultimate guidance for mastering Lone Star quilts. She shows how to get your seam allowance perfect, which is the most important factor in patchwork. She discusses how to master joints, press seams, and work with the more stable lengthwise grain. Most of the quilts in Singular Stars can be made without Y-seams. With its thrilling bounty of groundbreaking designs and its detailed guidance on every aspect of making a Lone Star quilt, Singular Stars is the most thorough, the most ingenious, book on Lone Stars ever written. There really is no other book like it.

Now you can find out for yourself: It really is more fun and more satisfying when you can follow a pattern and yet achieve your own unique look by playing with the arrangement of the blocks. Each of the 12 patterns comes with full-size pattern pieces with grain arrows and trimmed points. 11 of the patterns are presented with accurate rotary instructions and illustrated cutting layouts. The 12th pattern (Steve's Star) is presented with paper foundation piecing. You can't fail to make a beautiful quilt every time you sit down and play with Piece 'n' Play Quilts. Quilters have been playing with blocks ever since the first Log Cabin was stitched, but Piece 'n' Play Quilts is far more than just Log Cabins. Any asymmetrical block that makes secondary patterns when turned in different directions is a Piece 'n' Play quilt. Drunkard's Paths, Fans, and Rail Fences lend themselves perfectly to Piece 'n' Play fun. In this book Judy Martin has designed some fabulously simple variations on these tried and true favorites.
