Fast Quilts from Fat Quarters
International teacher and designer, Barbara Chainey has developed a new cutting concept based on the fat quarters of fabrics so beloved by quilters everywhere. Her inspirational and easy-to-use plan is featured in 12 main projects, with a further 3 projects showing how the concept can be taken in different directions. Quiltmaking this way is stress-free with great results! Full step-by-step instructions for the projects plus a vast range of possibilities for blocks and block settings combine with practical information on choosing fabrics and colours to make an essential book for all quilters.
Barbara Chainey teaches patchwork and quilting on both sides of the Atlantic. Her best-selling title, The Essential Quilter, is widely considered to be a definitive quilting handbook, and The Essential Quilter's Project Book, and Quilt It! (also published by D&C) have been similarly acclaimed. She lives in Staffordshire.
