Author Lynne EdwardsAbout the Author

Lynne Edwards teaches and demonstrates a wide range of patchwork and quilting techniques, both hand and machine. She has written several textbooks that are considered to be definitive works.

In 1992 Lynne was awarded the Jewel Pearce Patterson Scholarship for International Quilt Teachers. This was in recognition of her outstanding qualities as a teacher and included a trip to the Houston Quilt Market and Festival.

Lynne's long association with the quilting movement, both locally and nationally, has involved her in the organization of quilt shows - from local village halls to the Quilters' Guild National Exhibitions. She has served on the selection committees and is an experienced judge of National Quilt Shows. She was Senior Judge at the South African Quilt Show in 1998, her first experience of judging overseas. In 2000, Lynne was given honorary lifetime membership of the Quilters' Guild of the British Isles and in 2002 was awarded the Amy Emms Memorial Trophy for services to quilting.

Lyn Edwards States Regarding Ruler:

I often incorporate folded rectangles into my Cathedral Window project

  • Combining them with the folded squares creates depth and movement in the completed designs.
  • Because of the complex folding process, the piece of fabric used to create this folded rectangle is an odd shape.
  • The Creative Grids Cathedral Window Rectangular Ruler has slots built into the inside angles so the shape can be rotary cut.
  • Cut multiple layers quickly and easily.
  • This ruler cuts one size of rectangle, finished 3" x 4.5", which is the one I use most.
  • The folded rectangle can be combined with 3" and 4 1/2" finished folded squares.
