First-Time Quiltmaking: Learning to Quilt in Six Easy Lessons 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

If you want to learn to quilt and don’t have access to a mentor or group, First-Time Quiltmaking is a good way to start. It is set up in a six-lesson format and covers everything I would teach to my students. The only thing I might disagree with is how they show connecting the final ends of attaching a binding. While it is not wrong, my binding is completely continuous so you can’t tell whether the connection is a seam where two strips were put together to make the binding long enough or the final joining. The book is written with lots of graphics and tips and there are four different quilt tops for you to sew. There is a gallery of quilts and a glossary of terms. It even describes how to add a hanging sleeve and the all-important label. Know someone who wants to learn or want to learn yourself? Then a copy of this book will be a welcome addition to their/your library.
