Covering a wide range of techniques for both hand and machine quilting, this gentle guide uses clear step-by-step illustrations to walk the novice quilter from the very beginnings of choosing materials, preparing and cutting fabric, through to intermediate and advanced techniques like adding edgings and displaying their work. Useful troubleshooting tips are peppered throughout to help avoid common pitfalls. A directory of quilt blocks contains loads of ideas for variations, joining methods, and embellishments. Plus, invaluable instructions are given for how to draft blocks to fit the preferred size measurements of any project, big or small.

Also included are thirty projects complete with full step-by-step instructions, fabric requirements, clear photos and diagrams, plus pages of full-size templates. The hidden-spiral binding and full-color photographs and drawings make this a user-friendly resource that quilters will turn to again and again for information, as well as inspiration.
