Mattie Rhoades, founder & creator of Quiltsmart, Inc, struggled with cooking for years - until her cousin, Mary Ann Donnelly, convinced her to try a new approach. Mattie writes with honest delightful humor about her reluctant journey into the kitchen - hoping you will be inspired to be as creative in the kitchen as you are in the sewing room. Quiltsmart, founded in 1993, is known for patterns printed on fusible interfacing and fabric. Double Wedding Ring, Lone Star, Mondo Bag, Pretty Smart Apron, Market Bag, & Face Masks are a few of the popular patterns made easy with Quiltsmart methods and printed patterns. Easy, Fast & Smart - just like the recipes in this book!
