Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hargrave (Heirloom Machine Quilting, C&T, 1995. 3d ed.) writes that "while a tremendous amount of information has been published about the history of quiltmaking and the process of creating quilts, there has been a relative lack of information available to quilters about the medium with which we worktextiles." This well-organized manual covers textile manufacture, dyeing, printing, and finishing and also reviews the various types of quilting thread and battingall the information the quilter needs to use these basic ingredients of quilting to best advantage. Serious quilters will find invaluable the directions for testing fabrics, the reference charts on battings, and the fabric, thread, and needle compatibility charts. Highly recommended for all textile collections.
