Library JournalCollins (Small-Scale Quiltmaking, C&T, 1996) honed her piecing skills working with miniature blocks, which require even more precision in piecing than standard-size bed quilt blocks. In this book of techniques and tips derived from personal experience, she emphasizes fine craftsmanship and careful mastery rather than speed. Anyone taking the time to learn her precision piecing methods will be rewarded with visible results. Especially noteworthy is her inclusion of pattern-drafting information, often missing from other quilting technique books. An excellent choice for large public libraries and subject collections.

The Art of Machine Piecing - Print on Demand Edition based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Sally Collins has put a lot of work into this book. Her careful attention to detail dominates each page, guiding the reader through all the intricacies of machine piecing. Close-up photos of her quilt blocks "My Journey" with precise explanations, form the foundation of the book.
