Anne Baxter

Anne Baxter, author of Hopsctoch and Magic 4-Patch, both in the Fast, Fun, Waste-free Quilting series

Anne Baxter lives in rural Devon, in a thatched cottage which she shares with her husband and three dogs. Her patchwork decorates the house throughout and you can’t help but be inspired surrounded by her work and all those old beams.

Anne has sewn all of her life, prolifically for the last 25 years. She works across a wide range of patchwork and appliqué techniques and designs – from the Navajo blanket quilt that includes simple and advance techniques to simple cushion designs.

Quilts are her first love, but inevitably they take time to complete, whereas Anne finds that a cushion is a much quicker project to tackle. According to Anne, “There’s always room for another cushion. They are a manageable size and a marvellous vehicle to experiment with. The satisfaction that comes with having made something never fails to thrill me.”
