Fussy Cutters Club Officially Released

Fussy Cutters Club is officially released out in to the world as of today and it’s a bit of a crazy feeling to see something that’s been 2 years in the making finally out in the hands of other people. To celebrate the release I’m hosting a blog hop to share with you the projects from the book, some behind-the-scenes about how they came to be, why the book is important to me and (probably the best part of the whole thing) what some of my favourite bloggers have made using the book! The blog hop is going to run for just under a month and there’s going to be chances to win copies of the book and mystery bundles, participate in an International Swap and meet some amazing people along the way.

I’l be blogging each day on the blog hop (as per the timetable below) and sharing the project, a little about that day’s blogger and some more information about how you can use Fussy Cutters Club to make these projects your own and unleash your creativity. To kick off the event I’ve shared some thoughts about why I love Fussy Cutters Club over on the C&T Publishing blog and you can read them by clicking here.

I’m really proud of Fussy Cutters Club and I hope that you’ll come to love it as much as I do. The book is jammed packed with all the information you need to know about how I approach fussy cutting. It’s great for beginners just starting out, or for those of you that have being sewing and quilting for a number of years and you’re looking for new ways to use fabrics. My goal with Fussy Cutters Club is to inspire you to trust your own aesthetic and have fun with fabrics. In Fussy Cutters Club I walk you through everything you need to know to understand fabrics, what to look for when buying fabrics and how to use them effectively to inject your personality into your creative projects.

Fussy Cutters Club goes into detail about all the tools, notions, tips and tricks I use when I work and shows you how you can get away with using just a ruler and rotary cutter to have fun. There’s also a chapter on the other pieces of equipment I use for those looking to branch out (within their budget). I walk you through how to customise templates you have on hand to help with fussy cutting and even how to use templates to create those amazing repeating pattern designs we all love.

There’s 14 projects in the book for all skill levels and timeframes. I want you to be able to use this book as a reference book to get out of your comfort zone and start having fun in fabric stores and with your projects. Over the coming weeks I’ll be sharing the projects from the book and talking about ways you can customise them even further and sharing examples of the projects made by the amazing bloggers on the blog hop and even some alternate versions I’ve made. It’s going to be awesome and I’m so thrilled to be able to share it all with you!

    I haven’t done much fussy cutting, but would like to learn more about it in your book!

  2. Leanne October 18, 2017 at 5:37 am

    I’d like to learn how to do fussy cutting better. I always seem to be making a mess when I try.

  3. Holly Colvin October 16, 2017 at 2:55 pm

    I have only “fussy cut” on occasion, if there is a particular part I want in a quilt. I haven’t done it for a whole project, or with that in mind in particular. I should find some fun fabric to use!

  4. Mom C October 14, 2017 at 1:15 am

    I do a little fussy cutting, mostly I just take fabric as it comes. But when I want specific designs and images I fussy cut. Thanks.

  5. Susan October 13, 2017 at 8:59 am

    If we have the same definition of fussy cutting, then I’ve done a lot of it. I have one hexagon project that is all fussy cut to fit particular parts of a fabric design into the 1.25″ hexagon space. I’ve cut squares to showcase a particular design element, as well. I’m so happy for you that your book is released. It must feel a little exciting and a little scary as your baby leaves home. Congratulations! Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

  6. Tiina October 13, 2017 at 7:08 am

    I haven’t done a lot of fuzzy cutting because bits of fabric always end up in scrap boxes, seems like a waste. Your cuts sure look nice.

  7. lee October 12, 2017 at 8:36 pm

    I like to do fussy cutting / sewing but need more practice! I am looking forward to this hop! thanks!

  8. Melissa T October 12, 2017 at 11:32 am

    Super excited for you. Heading to my local textile bookstore tonight to see if I can get a copy. Self confessed fussy cutting addict here…though strictly of the eyeballing and hoping for the best kind! I would fussy cut all the things if I could.

  9. Elizabeth Johnson October 12, 2017 at 5:36 am

    I love fussy cutting especially in the foundation paper piecing I make. It gives it an extra pop in just about any project! I would love to win a hard copy of your book because I love your work. I am learning a lot about fabric selection! I haven’t been very good at it in the past, just buying because it was in a bundle and popular. Now, I am trying to be a little particular in what I buy. Looking at size of prints and colors more.

  10. Paige @QuiltedBlooms October 10, 2017 at 2:05 pm

    Congrats on the release! Now that you have the website issues worked out, it’s smooth sailing from here!

  11. Ella October 10, 2017 at 5:18 am

    I’d love be better at it!

  12. Archie The Wonder Dog October 10, 2017 at 4:45 am

    Your book looks and sounds great! I love fussy cutting, especially when I’m hand piecing a project, and have several fat quarters and half metres where oddly shaped moths have clearly been having a feast ;o)

  13. Margaret Williams October 9, 2017 at 1:40 pm

    I worry about wasting fabric, but I will fussy cut when it’s a project I’m making for someone special.

  14. marina October 9, 2017 at 10:47 am

    I find fussy cutting really hard, and would love some ideas on how to get it right the first time, as frustration and no patients is my key problem thanks

  15. June October 9, 2017 at 10:43 am

    Love the look! I need help getting started.

  16. Carol Andrews October 9, 2017 at 10:22 am

    Congratulations on the book release. It looks intriguing! Fussy cutting can be fun for some projects (such as I Spy Quilts) but it does scare me a bit! Guess I need your book to get over the fear!

  17. Theresa October 9, 2017 at 9:16 am

    Fussy Cutting is a hit and miss for me. I would love to have some successful cheats and guidelines to help me enjoy it more! Have a great time in Houston!

  18. Laura October 9, 2017 at 8:16 am

    Your book looks like it has lots of inspiration. I am quite accustomed to doing some fussy cutting. Sometimes I even look at fabric and say “how cute to fussy cut”. However, being frugal by nature, I like to figure out a way to use the fabric without wasting too much. Hope you’ve got some hints for that.

    Fussy cutting!-what a hoot! I’m so excited as I always thought of cutting out the best pieces of fabric and using them for a beautifully decorative design BUT never would have thought that it was “allowed”…. Today while at work I listed to my favourite podcast Modern Sewciety, I heard you speak in episode 129. This was my first encounter with you and I honestly felt so excited and motivated to follow your projects and get my hands on your inspiring book. My fabric selection is anything to do with butterflies, birds, trees, flowers and nature and lots of colour. Am I scared? Not anymore, now that I know that I can cut out lovely designs. Thank you Angie!

  21. Robby H. October 8, 2017 at 11:40 am

    I’m looking forward to this book/blog hop. I am a bit of an impatient (but also precise) quilter and fussy cutting seems, well… fussy. But I love the results, so I’m hoping to get some ideas for working efficiently. Good luck with the book launch!

  22. Quilting is in my Blood October 7, 2017 at 9:23 pm

    I’ve done a little fussy cutting but am definitely interested in learning more tips and tricks to highlight some of the great fabrics I have in my stash. Take care, Mary.

  23. Sarah Hartland October 7, 2017 at 6:42 pm

    I love fussy cutting it gives a whole new dimension to my quilts …. am always looking for new ideas and inspiration 😍

  24. Jodie October 7, 2017 at 6:23 pm

    Congratulations on your book!
    I like how fussy cut things look, but it’s not something I’ve tried much of myself.

  25. Melissa Ryther October 7, 2017 at 5:16 pm

    I absolutely marvel at fussy cutting but it terrifies me. Guess I’ll have to take the plunge!

  26. Anne Dawson October 7, 2017 at 12:22 pm

    I love your projects where you fussy cut fabrics but I a little scared to try it myself. The book looks great!

  27. Lauren Bond October 7, 2017 at 11:49 am

    I ❤️ Fussy cutting! Especially how you can make one fabric look like you have used several different fabrics in the one project.

  28. Kathy E. October 7, 2017 at 11:16 am

    How super exciting to know your book is now released and those awesome projects will be created everywhere! I do enjoy fussy cutting and not a bit afraid of it. The only part I don’t l like about it is the odd-shaped scraps that are sometimes left over. I’d love to dive into your book!

  29. Heather J October 7, 2017 at 10:15 am

    Congratulations Angie! I like seeing fabrics fussy cut, but do not always do it for myself. It is hard to remember the .25″ seam allow allowances to ensure perfect placement.

  30. Alison October 7, 2017 at 8:48 am

    I am completely freaked out by fussy cutting – it seems like everyone is doing it. I still do my EPP without it and that is fine. I have seen some amazing fussy cutting on instagram and I am super jealous but my attempts are always a little off the mark.
