Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As the title implies, this is a basic introduction to the art of quilting, presented as a series of classes comprised of brief lessons. The authors start at the very beginning, with selection of supplies for quilting, and discuss everything beginners need to know about cutting, piecing, basting, quilting, and finishing. The projects are attractive yet accessible, and the mother-daughter authors have an engaging, friendly style.

    The perfect beginning quilting text (and also for the experienced

    This new book by Ms Hargrave is a no-nonsense, tell-me-everything-I-need-to-know text for both the novice quilter and experienced quilters wanting to improve their craftsmanship. The book takes students through a series of projects design to teach them many of the skills involved in traditional quiltmaking. However, the information in the book is equally applicable to art quilters who wish to improve their cutting and stitching technique. The book covers a variety of topics not usually covered in beginning quilting texts (or even some of their encyclopedic cousins), including setting up the work area for comfort, correct cutting techniques, information about cotton fabrics, and information about the tools needed and how to care for them.

    Each topic is accompanied by excellent close-up photographs, which enable readers who do not have ready access to a beginning quilting class to use the book as a beginning quilting course. The book can also serve as a "refresher" and source of additional information for students enrolled in a beginning sewing class. More experienced quilters will find the book a great "go-to" reference source, although an alphabetical index of topics would have been helpful. (The topics are arranged by lessons within each class.)
    The included projects are suitable for the level intended, and students should not be influenced by the "reproduction" fabrics used in many of the samples----they can be made in a variety of more contemporary fabrics.

    I recommend this book as a fantastic addition to the libraries of novice and experienced quilters alike.
