Quilt as you Go


Everything you need to know by Carolyn Forster

Book Description

The focus of this comprehensive and inspiring book is its 14 quilt-as-you-go techniques. Each technique is fully photographed step-by-step, and then ideas are given for transforming these completed, discrete blocks into full-size projects. 

Many people associate quilt-on-the-go with hand-stitched English paper piecing, but there are actually far more quilt-on-the-go techniques available to you, some of which work better by hand, others with machine stitching. Choose from 14 techniques here, including potholder quilts, stitch-and-flip, envelope quilts, lined circles and cathedral windows.

Quilting-on-the-go makes the quilting process simple and manageable and, for hand-sewn techniques, portable. If you are nervous about committing to a full-size quilt, or simply want to be able to take your work with you when you travel, this book will help you achieve remarkable results. 

All the templates required are included at full size.
