About the Author

Miriam Edwards comes from a long line of dressmakers and tailors. Her mother taught her to make clothes for her dolls and then for herself, and alter she did the same for her own children. Miriam discovered patchwork when she went to the National Parchwork Championships with friends in 1992. She was enthralled by what she saw and came home weighed down with fabrics. She soon started attending classes and made her first quilt in 1993. In 2001 she became a Young Quilter's Representative, and she now holds regular children's workshops. Her patterns have been published in Patchwork and Quilting and Fabrications magazines.
