Quilting-on-the-Go: Taking It Further draws upon the time-friendly technique of creating large quilts by breaking them down into more manageable sections, as originally revealed in author Carolyn Forster's previous book titled Quilting-on-the-Go, and takes the methodology to the next level. Topics covered include how to make blocks in multiple sizes, break down borders and sashings/frames into smaller pieces that can be created anywhere, and how to join independent pieces into a beautiful whole. Eleven projects in a variety of sizes from 6" to 25 1/2", step-by-step instructions clearly illustrated with full-color photographs and diagrams, and a user-friendly introduction make Quilting-on-the-Go: Taking It Further a choice pick for any quilter seeking to refine their skill and working knowledge!Midwest Book Review; June, 2014
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 (UK); Winter, 2014
