I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to learn to quilt, especially if you don't know how to sew. I flipped through some books at Joann Fabrics, and this one looked easy to follow. It truly is, and I still refer back to it whenever I make something new. A lot of quilt patterns in magazines will give instructions for piecing the quilt top, then end with "quilt and bind as desired." It is nice to have this thourough step-by-step guide to use. Plus it has a couple of patterns that make great baby quilts!
