Editorial Reviews

April/May 2013 Quilting Arts Magazine
This compact volume is absolutely packed with almost any calculation you might need to create a quilt. The book opens with a "Quick-Start Guide" in a Q&A format to help readers find the most popular topics such as: How do I sew a curved seam? or Where should the grainline be? Beginners who are looking to branch out from conventional designs will find yardage requirements, cutting tips, and piecing tutorials. More seasoned quilters will be able to quickly check such things as how many hexagons can be cut from a yard of fabric. (The answer is a lot, depending on the finished size of your hexagon.) The book is divided into color-coded chapters featuring comprehensive diagrams and charts. It is ring-bound and the outer cover wraps all the way from front to back to protect the pages from getting worn along the binding. This updated version of a beloved favorite includes 20 new pages with current information on standard sizes of precut fabric packs and Y-seam construction tips. This reference book will be a valuable addition to any quilting library.
May/June 2014 Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting
Everything you need to know about quilting, from buying enough fabric to finishing the binding, is in this handy spiral-bound reference guide. Four seasoned experts updated the previous best-selling guide with more information—new blocks, cutting charts, piecing techniques, and more.
May/June 2014 The Applique Society Newsletter
C&T Publishing has recently released three new Reference guides packed with information quilters and sewists use on a regular basis. The first of these treasures would be the All-In-One Quilter's Reference Tool by Harriet Hargrave, Sharyn Craig, Alex Anderson and Liz Aneloski. I am sure you are familiar with this booklet as this go-to guide for quilters has sold 100,000 copies around the world. This new expanded edition includes 20 additional pages with new quilt blocks, cutting charts, piecing techniques and more. Inside you will find easy-to-follow charts, tables and illustrations. You will also find yardage requirements, cutting instructions, setting secrets, supplies, piecing techniques and number conversions. I reach for this all the time when trying to convert a fraction to a decimal or to determine how large a quilt I would like to make.

    Fantastic reference book

    No more math mistakes. This book has all the necessary measurements you will need for all quilt projects. I had put off designing a quilt I had in my mind. The book took all the measurement questions I had for corner pieces. You can't' live without this reference book.
