    Quilt As You Go is a wonderful technique that enables you to quilt your blocks at the same time as you piece them, and then put them together in a couple of simple steps to get as big or as small a quilt as you wish - divide and conquer is the key to success.

    Gillian Travis is a renowned textile artist from the UK, this is what she says about this workshop on her website :"My new collection of quilts is made using an innovative method of weaving or interlacing.

    Inspired by Scandinavian woven Christmas decorations I have developed the patterns and designs to make fabric blocks that when put together can make a wall hanging, cushion or bag.

    Images of these quilts can be seen in my gallery."
