Alex Anderson, host of HGTV's Simply Quilts, makes quilting easy and appealing for first-time quilters. In this slim volume, Anderson explains about tools (from the rotary cutter to the iron to the sewing machine), fabric selection and preparation, and basic techniques needed to begin quilting. She then offers simple but good-looking projects to utilize your newfound skills. Once you've learned the preliminaries of cutting, pinning, stitching, pressing, and finishing, you'll be ready to make any (or all) of the six quilts in the book: Rail Fence, Nine Patch, Log Cabin, Friendship Star, Flying Geese, or Sampler.
