The Joys of Quilting – Quilting Techniques for the Avid Quilter 

The Joys Of Quilting is a text that is written by an author who has truly learned the joys of doing this hobby from her grandmother. It may be fast becoming a lost art in some circles but it is making its resurgence in some parts of the world.

A quilt is something that can demonstrate love in so many ways. It may be the love of a significant other, a child or a friend. It can even be made to show bits of family history. Some quilts are made for other purposes like to support a worthy cause such as the fight against cancer or AIDS. No matter what the reason, a quilt is never ever just putting something together for the sake of it.

Through the text the author not only gives a bit of history on the process of quilting but also makes every effort to convey some of the time honored techniques that are used even today. The text is insightful and educational and would serve well in any household that loves hobbies.

In fact anyone that has an interest in quilting should have a copy of this text. It is not as complex as some of the other texts are and works well to convey a bit more than the basics.

Excellent resource This is quite an interesting book, starting from the history of quilting and then giving useful, hands on advice that the quilting fans can readily apply. As somebody who is a beginner eager to learn the techniques, this is a wonderful introduction which lays a good foundation of knowledge.

This is a good book for a beginner. I is rather boring if you have made a couple of quilts.
