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. She is responsible for a myriad of products pertaining to machine quilting, and she has developed batting with hobbs Bonded fibers and designed fabric for P&B Textiles.

This series of how-to quilting books by the mother/daughter team of Harriet & Carrie Hargrave are very informative and helpful to someone new or brushing up on their quilting skill. The descriptions, photos and projects are easy to understand and follow along for the reader. If you want to learn not only how to quilt but also how to design and create a quilt  yourself, these books will show you how to do it. This is Volume 2 from a series of six books. Each book helps the reader progress in skill level, building upon the previous volume. I recommend this series of books to anyone wanting to learn the hows and whys of quilting as well developing the ability to create a beautiful quilt.
