Notes

Quilt as you go made modern

I received a copy of Quilt-as-you-go made modern by Jera Brandvig.

While I have tried some of the QAYG techniques before – see video below – the book is very thorough  and detailed. Jera not only describes the technique but she also offers alternatives to the basic block by block quilting.

The book also has lots of diagrams that make it particularly easy to follow the patterns.

To top it all up you get to try the techniques in 13 different projects.
