About Jan T
Jan T (Urquhart) Baillie, renowned Australian quiltmaker, is known for her sixty degree triangle quilts, and for her revolutionary fast piecing system, Listen With Your Eyes, which she invented in the 1990s 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. Jan T travelled Australia teaching and made plenty of friends.
She has had four patchwork books published, wrote a column in Down Under Quits magazine for twenty-five years, has been guest columnist for Patchwork Tsushin, as well as writing many, many online articles.
Now she wants to start beginning patchworkers off right — the Very Easy Way.

What is a scrap quilt?
A patchwork quilt made from collected fabrics. Usually, a scrap quilt is not sewn from bought yardage, it is made from what the quiltmaker has in her ‘stash’. I cannot make a quilt from my cupboards, unless it is made from leftover scraps of fabrics from other quilts that I have made.
