Monday Book Club

In "Quilting on the go" Carolyn Forster
explains how to break large projects into
smaller portable sections.

She shows you how to piece your blocks &
then baste and quilt them.   Then join the
quilted blocks together and finish it all off.

She includes some very great information and instruction
throughout the book which is useful even if you choose
to finish your projects another way.

Great instructions and ideas for hand quilting.
