About the Author

Carolyn Forster started making quilts when she was a teenager and went on to study Textiles at the University of Bath. Since graduating, she has taught patchwork and quilting both in the UK and the USA and has had her quilts featured in a number of books and magazines, including Fabrications, Popular Patchwork and Patchwork and Quilting. Carolyn lives in Tunbridge Wells, UK with her husband and son.


Using pre-cut fabric packs takes the bulk of work out of quilt-piecing, leaving
you to concentrate on the sewing. With this savvy approach, even beginners will be able to tackle the nine quilts here, made even easier by the  comprehensive instructions. No scrap is left behind either, with nine smaller projects that you can quickly make and give as gifts.
