Giveaway Closed! Waiting on hearing from winner.
Here’s another giveaway. Read on for deadline and how to enter.
In Quilting-on-the-Go, author Carolyn Forster explains how to break large quilt designs down into small, manageable sections that can be easily quilted by machine or hand. With her instructions, quilters can piece a block, quilt another and by the time the blocks are ready to be joined, most of the quilting is already done.
In the Basics section, she provides all the information necessary to prepare manageable pieces of quilting that can be taken anywhere. Topics include equipment, the frames, the fabric, sewing the patchwork, quilting, all about size, quilt construction and more.
The Project section includes 15 quilts created using the Quilt-on-the-Go blocks. Each framed block is pieced and quilted individually using the full-size templates provided. She includes cutting instructions and step-by-step diagrams and photos. The sashing/frame designs suggested for the projects create secondary patterns across the quilt once the blocks are joined.
Her instructions are straightforward and easy for readers to understand.
It is an interesting concept and a way for those who don’t have space or don’t want the challenge of working on a regular size quilt can make that bed covering. Since the quilt is broken up into small pieces, it does seem to make the project more doable. It’s also a great way to be able to work on your quilt anytime or place. I would have liked to have this book back when I was interested in making traditional quilts.
This is another fine quilting book from Landauer Publishing. It contains 120 pages and retails for $24.95. It is available at your favorite bookstore, quilt shop or from Landauer Publishing.

I would love to win this book! After quilting the second of two twin size quilts on my home sewing machine I vowed to never again quilt! This book offers a way out of that, though, and I hope I win!!
I am new to quilting and would love to have this book as I found it quite difficult to put the whole quilt under the machine…and I need help!!!!!!!!!! Thank you soooooooooooooo much.
I would love this book, I wish I had it when making a couple of bed size quilts. They are really hard to quilt in one big piece.
Oh, I would love to have this book! Portable quilting – what a great concept.

I have always wanted to try a quilt as you go quilt. would love to win
This looks like an interesting twist on quilting! I like the idea of having smaller pieces or blocks to work on…but I wonder how they are combined after quilting. Guess I have to win the book, right? Sounds like a good idea! Judy R
This sounds like a great book! I remember another book from a long time ago that was based on something similar.
My mom and sister are so addicted to quilting. They would love to have this book.
