1, 2, 3 Sew and 1, 2, 3 Quilt are both published by Chronicle Books.

My first book, 1, 2, 3 Sew, is a basic introduction to sewing with 33 projects organized so that you can build your skills as you sew. Watch the 1, 2, 3 Sew book trailer, see project images and take a look at the table of contents below:

1, 2, 3 Quilt features 24 projects, divided into eight chapters of three projects each. Each chapter focuses on a different shape and the projects progress in difficulty, to build on your skills as you work through the book. There are patchwork and quilted projects including pillows, an apron, skirt, tote bag, etc. Then each chapter culminates with a quilt, for a total of eight quilt patterns. So, if you’re new to quilting, you can learn skills gradually while making some useful projects. And if you’re an advanced quilter, you might pick up on some sewing projects that you haven’t tried yet.

Projects range from basic to advanced, from a lopsided log cabin to cathedral windows. Throughout the book, you will learn various quilting techniques in the How-To sections. See the projects from the book below:
