Product Description

Review

'Quilting on the go!' is a superb book and a lot of thought has been put into how the book is organised so that you can progress with your own quilt designs. If you love the idea of sewing on the train or bus to work or in the canteen when you get there then this book is for you. Jessica shows you exactly what you need to get a travel pack together so you can hand stitch patchwork on the go. There are 18 pages of help in the 'Getting ready' section including advice on how to collate a fabric collection from thrift/charity shops, online, through fabric swaps etc, 16 pages on 'Starting to sew' with advice on tacking, what to do with the borders when you sew hexagons together and where to get the backing material. There are 42 pages in the third section, which includes ten projects: a tiny sewing kit, a hexagon cushion, a pincushion, a shoulder bag, a small pouch, a laptop bag, a falling stars baby quilt, a tanuki stripe throw, a photo frame and a travel quilt which is in the photo above. Section four contains 20 pages with features on the different designs you can sew - such as equilateral triangles and squares, half hexagons and 60-degree diamonds with interlocking background. There are then ten pages of graph paper with different patchwork shapes and designs already drawn on so you can colour in and see what works best. There are two pages of templates, one page of which features actual size templates, the other ones you will need to enlarge on a photocopier. The graphs at the back of the book and the neat organisational feel of the book are what impressed me the most. I loved the look of the book as soon as I saw it and the details inside are so exhaustive. I think you get a lot of advice for your money with this book as it's slightly thicker than average. Jessica is extremely talented and you can follow her blog 'Life Under Quilts'. --Sewingisforgirls.blogspot.com

This is the book that having bought it, I am making many of the items in it and thinking of other ways to use the template shapes. There are a number of small items to make to get to know the techniques for joining the shapes so no need to commit to making a quilt. This is the book I will use again and again.

This is a fantastic book, whether you're new to English Paper Piecing or not. Jessica really covers all the ground with her thorough explanations and there's so many useful tips. The book has great projects - some small ones as well as beautiful quilts. I also found the illustrations of the various ways of putting shapes together really inspiring too. Highly recommend this book and so glad I bought it!

I needed a little inspiration and this book provided just that. It has opened my eyes to pre-cut templates and easier methods for hand sewn miniatures.

Some excellent ideas for portable projects. Good to get back to 'English' patchwork for a change. Wished I'd taken it on holiday!
