The quilts below were made almost entirely from the scrap bin by my students, by my eldest daughter, Angela, and by me. Some border fabric was purchased for one or two, but not for the blocks. All from the stash!
Jan T (Urquhart) Baillie, renowned Australian quiltmaker, is known for her scrap quilts, her sixty degree triangle quilts, and for her revolutionary fast piecing system, Listen With Your Eyes, which she invented in 1990 and which has been adopted worldwide.
Teaching (make that enthusing) people about quiltmaking, traditional and not so traditional, for more than thirty years, was her life.
She likes to tell people that she likes "big bits and fast", is a firm believer in beginners being taught to:
"walk first and run later".
Her slogan is: You have to have fun or you have to go home.
