Sew Organized for the Busy Girl Blog Tour

A little over 3 years ago, right about when I started this blog, I met a very nice woman who was also a new quilt blogger named Heidi Staples. To this day, Heidi remains one of my quilty/blogging BFF's - we talk often and despite the fact that we live on opposite coasts, we were even able to meet in person a couple of years ago when I was on the west coast for a few days.

However, even if Heidi was not a good friend of mine, I would still love her new book - Sew Organized for the Busy Girl: Tips to Make the Most of Your Time & Space 23 Quick & Clever Sewing Projects You'll Love 

Her book is full of amazing projects, wonderful advice, neat tips and tricks, and, well, it is just overall inspiring! Heidi also includes a few tips from some other sewing bloggers - including a little bit from me :)

I haven't been sewing much recently but after seeing the dotty hexagon pillow in Heidi's book, I now know what I want to make with these epp hexagons I made, um, possibly two years ago, um, maybe, hm, could they have been sitting around unused that long, hmm. Anyway, the pillow is the perfect project for using these. I think I need to make a few more for variety but eventually . . .

I definitely recommend that you take a look at Heidi's book. I've always loved how she mixes vintage with modern with classic in all her projects and her style comes through on every page of this book.
