From Publishers Weekly
Tyros and experienced quilters alike will delight in this extensive and abundantly illustrated manual by two quilting teachers. Thirty classic and two new patterns are offered, along with yardage requirements for five standard sizes, templates and specific directions for every stage of construction. McClun and Nownes advise on everything from choosing patterns and color schemes to timesaving techniques. Rich color photographs or diagrams accompany each instruction, eliminating guesswork and anticipating a novice's questions. Guidelines for adapting the book for classroom use are supplied, and interspersed "practice exercises" will build a beginner's confidence as well as skills. Pros will appreciate such resourceful hints as how to turn a dining-room table into a light table for tracing patterns, or how to use sandpaper to secure fabric as it is being marked.
