The BEST How-to-book!! I’ve been quilting for some time now… However, we can all use a little help now and then on a technique we’re not used to using all the time. What I absolutely LOVE about this book is that they give you several different options for almost every technique out there. This book stays on my quilting table at all times! There are tons of charts on quilt sizes, triangle sizes, flying geese, etc. It’s just a wealth of great information and presented in an easy to understand manner with lots of pictures.I have looked at several other “how-to” books and have not yet found one to even come close to replacing this one. I even took it and had it spiral bound so it was easier to look through and hold my place open. It’s been worth every penny and it’s not even the most expensive one out there!

All you need to learn to quilt I taught myself to quilt using this book and totally recommend it to anyone who wishes to learn about quilting. There hasn’t been a question I’ve had that it hasn’t been able to answer. Each topic has full descriptions and clear color photos of each step.Each chapter has its own table of contents, and different color side-of-page labels make the chapters easy to find just by flipping through the book. The chapters are: 1. Tools, Notions, & Supplies; 2. Fabric & Color; 3. Planning Pieced Blocks; 4. Planning the Quilt Top (with blank charts for planning); 5. Cutting; 6. Hand Piecing; 7. Machine Piecing; 8.Hand & Machine Applique; 9. Assembling the Quilt Top; 10. Batting & Backing; 11. Hand & Machine Quilting; 12. Binding & Finishing; 13. Specialty Techniques; 14. Glossary; 15. Index.I’ve been to quilting groups where seasoned quilters have been taught new techniques they’d never heard before, and I’d been doing them the entire time because I learned from this…
