Quilting on the go .... English Paper Piecing - Book Tour

Welcome to the Book Tour for my new book,

"Quilting on the go ..... English Paper Piecing."


I am so excited to be sharing with you over the course of the next few weeks the amazing creations of some very talented makers from all over the world.
Each adding their own spin on various projects from my book.

In my book I share with you my love of English Paper Piecing and Fussy Cutting.
My book will guide you through all the steps of English Paper Piecing, starting with the basics. working your way from the humble hexagon to stars, curves and more.


My dream for this book is that, if you have never English Paper Pieced before, that you pick up your needle and thread and not be scared to give it a go. Learn to enjoy the process and the joy that can come from stitching something with your own hands.

If you are experienced, I hope that you are inspired by the projects within the book, and venture into the journey of fabric selection and create one of my projects in such a way that makes it your own.

There are 16 projects in the book so this is just a snippet :)


"Linen and Lace Fussy Cut Pincushions".

"Strawberry and Cream Clamshell Dilly Bag"                    "Sweet Woodland Bunting"




"Patchwork Block Keeper"


             "Placemats"                                "Summer Star Table Runner"


I am also excited to share that I have partnered with some amazing companies to bring you Full paper and template kits for three of the projects within my book.

Here in Australia, please ask at your local quit shop and they can order any of them in for you. 
(Shop owners please see below)

I also have the support of Paper Pieces in the US for my overseas followers.

Paper Pieces already have Pre-orders up for the three kits :)

First up is "Celestial Star" - the cover quilt, followed by Radiant and Be my Bunny.


 Please note that the paper kits DO NOT contain the pattern. 
You will need to purchase the book for the instructions.


 (Shop owners, these kits are also available wholesale through Paper Pieces, Creative Abundance and Imprezzio)
