Meet the Author

Kate learned to sew clothes at the age of 12 and has sewn for herself ever since. After her twins were born in 2005, she began designing soft toys for them, which led to selling her toy creations as a way to stay sane while her babies were little. Soon she began selling patterns for the toys and quilts she was making. She's never met a fiber craft she didn't like, and when she isn't sewing she likes knitting and spinning. Kate lives in the southwest of Western Australia with her husband and four girls.

    This book is divided into two types of patterns, quilts with borders and quilts that don’t have borders. All are made from 2.5” strips or jelly rolls. Of course, you can cut your own fabric as well.

    The book starts with an 11 page techniques of how-to do it. The 18 patterns follow with finished projects photos and well written instructions for each. Plenty of graphics make sure you are on the right path. Only one pattern requires a template and that is included at full size.

    I’m not crazy about the colorways but that is the nice thing about quilting, you can choose your own fabrics and use the author’s patterns.

    This is the first quilt e-book I have ever used and I find that it just isn’t the same as having a hard copy book that you can look through. The book winds up with a three paragraph bio of the author.
