Praise for Urban Scandinavian Sewing
“Another great book for lovers of the modern style. Kirstyn shares her love of Scandinavian culture and design with 18 projects, as well as recipes and stories that transport you to a place of simple beauty and esthetic.” —Quilter’s Connection Magazine
“With the book divided into makes for winter and “midsummer,” there should be enough to keep you crafting year-round. The quilting projects are basic, but wouldn't something like this applique quilt just hit the spot thrown over your IKEA Malm bed? And much like our favorite Swedish department store, the addition of meatballs and lingonberry sauce (and other recipes) make for a delightful little quirk that sets this book apart.” —Quilt Now Magazine
