Hello everyone. I’m the last stop of Quick & Easy Quilts book tour. I’m the most inexperienced quilter of the talented group of ladies on these tour. This arrangement suited me well. It gave me more time to work on my project. Sad to say my plan has not left the paper. I really been busy lately. You can always check my quilt & patchwork tab to see my previous work. My favourite is this placemat sets I made for my brother.
I met Lynne over 4 years ago. Our friendship started when she sewn a skirt based on an old blog post: “how to draft a skirt”. Whenever she had a dressmaking question she would ask me and I would do the same. I would pick her brain on modern quilting techniques, patterns, books etc. How wonderful to know people with different set of skills that you can just ask advice from. We, as a sewing community, learn so much from each other. From our mutual admiration I was invited to teach dressmaking at Fat Quarterly retreat. I wish they have a new edition soon because before teaching there; I attended as a participant the year before. I had the best of times. I know sometimes the different types of sewing gets segmented online into more specialist subjects blogs but we all connected by the same passion: sewing. There is so much cross-knowlodge.
I’m so happy to share “Lily’s” latest book. I have a huge admiration for her. She may still make me a prolific quilter one day.The book has 20 projects quick projects; from lap quilts, wall hangings, bed spreads and pillows. Quick but no mean boring or simple looking. She does have some traditional looking blocks but my favourite projects are the ones that don’t need careful measuring. Yes!!!! A quilt that you don’t need to be exact by the ‘millimetre’. WIN! The patterns are all in ‘Inches’ as most quilt patterns are. As most project based books you still will find basic instructions on how to cut and sew a quilt, all the materials you will need and a list of suppliers.
