Seams Like Yesterday

Seams like Yesterday by Karen Styles Karen Styles is an Australian quilt designer who has been fabricating works of art with reproduction fabrics for the past 20 years. Karen loves stars, hexagons, medallion/framed quilts, and is a Master at English Paper Piecing. Her book is a gourmet fest of these passions, including a sublime Sampler where color, creativity, techniques and gorgeous fabrics abound. Over the years I have enjoyed seeing my beginners light up as they discover the joy of patchwork and quilting and the more experienced students enjoy the more challenging designs I have created. » - Karen Styles Karen’s quilting journey began as a teenager when she learned the basics of EPP. The quilting bug didn’t gain hold until after the birth of her children when a dear friend convinced her to take some classes at a local Melbourne shop. And as the French say, voilà, she was hooked! Karen began reproducing antique quilts and eventually purchased the shop that had sparked her quilting rebirth! Karen loves to find unique and uncommon works to reinterpret. She adores the precision required in assembling stars (a common motif in her quilts), as well as in circular forms and hexagons. Karen is a renowned international teacher, and her inspirational personality is as bright and warm as her quilts.
