Product description

Review

Quilting-on-the-go is simply a technique for quilting your project in small units which can then be joined to complete the quilt. Some quilters enjoy using this method as the units are a manageable size, which is great for honing machine-quilting skills, and are portable, so if you're hand quilting your work can go wherever you do!

Carolyn's first book Quilting-on-the-Go proved very popular, so this follow-up, as the title suggests, takes things further, including sashing/frames and borders. The first half of the book covers the basics, including a well illustrated section on joining your quilted units. This is followed by eleven traditional projects, from runners and table toppers to large quilts.

--The Quilter, No. 141, Winter 2014

Although the patterns are quite familiar to quilters, the methods shown are clear and well explained and for those of us who hate going anywhere without fabric, needles and a piece of quilting it is really good. It is difficult to layer out a king sized bed quilt but the methods in the book would make it easy whether by machine or by hand, so for my next quilt I will be doing it Carolyn Forster's way, it will save lots of bad language when trying to force a quart of fabric under the pint sized arm of my machine.

I was all set for a new way to quilt on the go. Then I found out that this book is really about quilt AS you go. I have been doing that for many years and I thought I might learn a new technique. I didn’t but it did make for a good review of what I already knew.

There are a dozen projects including table runners, table toppers and quilts. There are over 50 pages on how to get started with this technique. It even includes how to make a string quilt from your scraps.

The projects have a colored photo of the finished item and a small paragraph about it to begin the instructions. Finished block and item size are listed. Fabric requirements and cutting lists are set off in a colored box.

Graphics are included with the written instructions to make sure you are on the right path. If templates are needed, they are included at full size so no need to run out to the copier.

The book ends with a two paragraph bio of the author. I always love to read about who wrote the book. If you are new to this technique, this would be a good book to add to your library.
