Ezine review: Fat Quartlery Fussy Cutting

Fussy Cut is the term for cutting out fabric to highlight a motif. It’s a hugely popular technique in sewing and quilting. Lucky for us, it’s the theme for the third issue of Fat Quarterly eZine out this month. Every issue is better than the last. No joke. The topics are interesting and its full of projects you’ll want to make. Visually it’s lovely plus it’s easy to navigate. Here are some issue highlights.
