4.0 out of 5 stars Perfectionist Quilting, February 10, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Quilter's Academy Vol. 1 - Freshman Year: A Skill-Building Course in Quiltmaking (Paperback)
This is an amazingly thorough introduction to quilting and full of tips for quilters of all levels. I have been quilting for fifteen years and learnt that I have many bad habits and there are lots of ways I could do things better and more easily. The sample quilts, based on only squared and rectangles, are great. However it definitely tends toward the perfectionist end of the scale, so may not suit everyone.

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!
