Beginner's Quilting Book

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!
It contains instructions for both hand and machine piecing, so it's good for sewers of all abilites.
Here is my first attempt at both sewing and quilting. It's a quilted Nine-Patch block. Lesson Number One.


  1. I am going to have to get this book. I need something to get me started and this looks like a great beginning!

  2. I have that book because you suggested it before! Now, I just have to actually open it....
