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.

Meet the Author

Harriet started quilting seriously in 1974, working alongside her mom. Her early quilting career included producing baby quilts for craft shows and teaching adult education classes. In 1981, harriet opened her quilt shop, Harriet’s Treadle Arts. Her specialties at the time were free-motion embroidery, machine arts, and machine quilting. In 1982, Harriet attended one of Mary Ellen Hopkins’s seminars. Mary Ellen’s streamlined techniques and innovative design ideas led harriet to a new way of thinking, which caused her to give up the machine arts and to teach only quilting. Today, she is world renowned for being a true mover and shaker in the quilt world. In the late 1990s, she was voted one of the 88 Leaders of the Quilt World. Harriet created and inspired a whole new generation of machine quilters with her bestselling book Heirloom Machine Quilting, which has enjoyed 22 continuous years in print. She is also the author of Mastering Machine Appliqué and From Fiber to Fabric, and co-author of The Art of Classic Quiltmaking.
