Review

"...Ms. Hartman is a very prolific quilter and designer, and this book has lots to offer quilters of all stages. The instructions begin with the basics, how to sandwich a quilt, what kind of stitching to use while quilting, basic color theory, etc. Personally, I am quite a novice quilter. I have made them, but my interest lies primarily in fashion sewing. I was introduced to all sorts of interesting things through this book. These binding clips, which look like hair clips (but will snag your curly locks so beware) are an innovation that was new to me. Also, adding this tiny flap before binding makes a quilt easy to hang on a wall. Genius. Now to the designs - These quilts are clean, modern and range in difficulty from Beginner, through Confident Beginner to Intermediate. The best part of the designs is this: for every design, she shows her blocks in two more permutations, so you could take the quilt in your own direction either with color, or shape of pieces. It's so exciting when a designer will hand the reins over, and encourage you to use your own design sensibilities. While we're discussion quilting, I wanted to call your attention to our Beginning Quilting class coming up in March. Come join Melissa as she guides you through the basics of quilt-making from choosing fabrics to assembly and and binding." ―treadle yard goods (2/6/11)



"Elizabeth Hartman, the brainchild behind the popular quilt blog, Oh, Fransson!, has debuted her first book, The practical Guide To Patchwork: New Basics For The Modern Quilt Maker. The Practical Guide toTo Patchwork is a great book for beginning to intermediate quilters, covering everything from basic supplies and planning your quilt, to free-motion quilting and binding, all pesented with a bright aesthetic and clear, simple instructions. Twelve beautiful and brightly colored projects are accompanied by numerous step-by-step photographs, perfect for the visual learner. Each project includes ideas for alternate colorways that show you how swapping out fabrics can completely change the look of your quilt. The Practical Guide To Patchwork would make a great starter book for a young person who wants to learn how to make fun and functional quilts." ― Quilters World



"Here's a 'How-to-quilt' book from the fresh and appealing Stash Books. With its open layout, lots of simple diagrams and 'lifestyle' photography, The Practical Guide to Patchwork: New Basics for the Modern Quiltmaker by Elizabeth Hartman (Stash Books) will be the new essential guide for all new quilters. There are 12 projects from 'beginner' to 'intermediate' with just enough, but not too much instruction. The appeal is immediately evident — order a lot!" ― Quilters Newsletter



Quilt maker and quilting blogger Hartman introduces the basics of patchwork quilting, including color theory, tools tips, and techniques, then follows up with a variety of patchwork projects. Each projects includes full directions, as well as alternate fabric options and pattern modification ideas. Patchwork is very traditional, and Hartman's color and pattern choices make the quilts look fresh and modern rather than fussy and old-fashioned. Her occasional use of precut fabrics in the patterns make several projects accessible to novices.

(Library Journal)

In my opinion, the author Elizabeth Hartman hits the nail on the head when she recommends “…choosing a first project that doesn’t have a deadline attached to it (such as a baby shower or birthday”. The Practical Guide to Patchwork starts out with basics from selecting cotton fabric, elements of a quilt, common fabric cuts, and tips for planning a quilt. The section on choosing fabrics was especially helpful to me. With all the great cotton prints available in quilts shops and my stash of home decor fabrics, sometimes I struggle with selecting the “right” combination of fabrics. You’ll find a breakdown of basic supplies, piecing techniques, machine-quilting tips, as well as tips for making and attaching binding.

The book includes step-by-step instructions and diagrams for 12 modern quilt projects. Each project is made in two alternate colorways to demonstrate the impact that color choices have on each quilt design. As a new member of a modern quilt guild, I’m inspired to dig through my stash of bright fabrics and start sewing
