I was interested in the comment Elizabeth had about this book leaning toward the perfectionist. I would rather call it leaning toward preciseness. Quilters Academy is showing new quilters, as well as more experienced quilters, that you don't have to sacrifice quality workmanship for speed. In fact, once you learn precision, the speed you gain is pretty amazing. No more ripping and frustration. I am not a perfectionist, but my time is worth a lot and the end product needs to be worthy of the time spent on it. A student in Australia has followed this book as we wrote it and used it as a manual. Each class was done and every quilt was made and her progress is amazing! She had never quilted before. If you want to know how she did it, visit her blog at patchnblock.blogspot.com. This book REALLY WORKS!
