More About the Author

Linda Franz is an award winning Canadian quilter. You may recognize her from Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson, or from her appearances on qnntv.com Her first hand pieced bed quilt won a First Place ribbon at the AQS show in Paducah, among other awards.

Linda has been on the leading edge with her CDs, DVDs, books-on-CD, downloadable books and books, but INKLINGO (patent pending) is her proudest achievement. Her love of hand piecing inspired her to invent Inklingo--but its most profound effect will ultimately be on the way quilters machine piece and appliqué.

Linda enjoys the friendship and enthusiasm of quilters on the Yahoo group for Quilted Diamonds (DJRetreats) and the Yahoo group for Inklingo.

Linda has taught in Canada and the US, including at the AQS show in Paducah Kentucky. She has enjoyed teaching hand piecing workshops for many guilds.

Linda has a BA in English Literature and graduated from the University of Toronto Law School with an LLB. She has published two Quilted Diamonds books and DVDs, and is currently introducing a series of Inklingo shape collections.

Linda's love of photography, quilting and Jane Austen's novels, and her involvement with online quilters, led her to start her first web site in 1998, to share photos with quilting friends. From the beginning, she showed her blocks from the front AND the back, and she is well known for her pressing techniques. Her famous directions for a scalloped binding have been available free online for ten years.

When I saw a picture of part of Lucy Boston's Patchwork of the Crosses in a magazine I was fascinated with her design and wanted to know more about it. Linda Franz's book (32 pages) shows in clear pictures and diagrams the entire quilt and its construction. It also gives useful, full size diagrams for making the patches and instructions for piecing the design. There are no quilting instructions because Lucy just sewed and tied a backing to the patchwork making it a coverlet, and it was never quilted. This book is so thorough that it saved me a trip to England to study the quilt for myself.

Beautiful original photos of Lucy Boston quilt on her bed. Very detailed photos of the sewing method. Easy to follow by hand or machine method. Linda's instructions make this one template quilt very achievable to follow and complete!

This book is helpful to a degree, but really, once you understand the basics, it's not really necessary. It gives the pros and cons for machine piecing vs. hand piecing and tips for doing it using Inklingo. Since I'm old-fashioned and do hand piecing, the other info wasn't really useful to me. There is one page, however, that shows possible layouts that is handy, and there are pictures that show examples. The book is not very big, but then, as I said earlier, once you understand the basics, it's a piece of cake. I'm not sure the price I paid was worth it, but I am glad to have it for reference.

I purchased this book after attending an english paper piecing class. The instructor on the day introduced me to this book and I was totally hooked on the magnificent crosses produced within this pages. I would love to have seen the originals.

The book is very well illustrated and the instructions on hand piecing, using the paper piecing method are very good.

I had been looking for the directions for this idea for a long time. It's exactly what I was looking for. Now I just need the time to make it.

This "book" and I hesitate to call it a book, is really more like a multi page ad for the author's products. There are little or no instructions and almost no useful information. I am extremely disappointed and feel pretty darn ripped off.
