Quick and Easy Quilts out today

So I am very excited to share that my new book, Quick and Easy Quilts is released today.

When I make quilts, I want to get on with it, go fast and get the whole thing done as quickly as possible so the gist of the book is that tricks, cheats, tips and techniques, help you to make these quilts much faster than those traditional old quilts with endless endless fiddly piecing.

There is a whole mix of projects in the book from large quilts through medium and small quilts down to cushions, bed runners and wall hangings.

There's also a good mix of techniques in the book including traditional piecing, speed piecing, quick and easy foundation paper piecing, raw edge applique and improv.

What you won't find in this book is English paper piecing, hand applique, hand quilting or even hand binding (although of course you're always free to bind you quilts as you wish!


I guess the book is aimed at any level of quilter but those either with little time to sew or those, like me, who are always impatient to finish this project so I can get onto the next one.

If you get your hands on a copy, I'd love to know what you think and of course would always appreciate a positive Amazon review!

  11. Sounds like an interesting concept from a person who enjoys the process as much as the finish. Will have to check this one out.
