This is a great resource for any beginner quilter and quilters who have been at this for awhile will also refer to it from time to time. I had looked for this book and heard it was out of print so you can imagine my surprise when I found one available.

I took a quilting course years ago and this was the book that we used. I'm now teaching class myself and I really love using this book. It give the students a variety of techniques to use and they get a great overall understanding of quilting.

I purchased this book because of a recomendation of my sister, an accomplished quilter. I believe a new quilter will learn a lot from this book. The directions are fairly good, and easy to envision what is expected of me, but I think the author should have emphasized some additional tips, as in when to press seams, and which direction. I have finished all the blocks, and am getting ready to quilt it. There is a very nice section for quilting. The author has the quilter making templates from the very first block. That took a lot of time, whereas most other patterns use strip piecing and a quilters ruler. Overall, if you're fairly new at quilting, and want to learn a lot of techniques quickly, you will love this book, and find it a great learning tool.

Format: Paperback
I have a lot of quilt books and booklets and this is a very get-down-to-brass-tacks book: look at the back cover. From when you open the book, you are given detailed instructions how to make it, slowly but surely in lesson through lesson. Good choice.

Great tool for those just starting out with sewing and quilting. Includes both hand sewing, needle use and sewing machine procedures.
Step-by-step guide includes beginner projects detailing how to set up templates, cut fabric, match pieces and either hand sew or use the machine. Lessons were divided into small projects to gain mastery of various beginning skills.
Final project is the quilt shown on the cover. Also, gives tips on how to choose fabric. Easy to read and follow. Was able to follow without any previous sewing experience. Highly recommend for those trying quilting for the very first time.

This book was just OK. I have seen better quilting instructions online for free. Lucky I didn't spend all that much on a used copy. I don't understand all the high reviews because it leaves a lot out. It has a few patterns, but it doesn't tell how big to cut the squares and relies on the printed patterns.

I am a beginner quilter and have more questions than the book answers...though I did learn a few things from it. Needs more illustrations and step by step instructions.

Might be a good book if you already know something about quilting.
