5.0 out of 5 stars Great intro to modern quilting! 25 Sept. 2013
By Josty, Kindle Customer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The title suggests this book is for a newer quilter and I agree. I purchased the book because I am a great fan of Ms. Dackson. My first pass of her book indicates a well thought out book without over focus on any one area. I enjoyed my second pass of the book as well, when I focused on the included 14 patterns. I liked them all! This is saying something when I usually find only one or two patterns I like in quilting books. My only critique item is when she instructs the use of straight seams rather than diagonal seams when making the binding itself. Overall the book is very well done. Congratulations Ms. Dackson on a wonderful book!

3.0 out of 5 stars a lovely book for beginners 10 Feb. 2014
By quilter - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading the book. However, reading the description was misleading - this book is for a very basic level beginner in quilting and had I known that, I wouldn't have purchSed the book. The pictures were lovely though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Objective Met to Becoming a Confident Quilter 8 Feb. 2014
By JLO - Published on
Let me tell ya, Elizabeth has certainly met her over all objective with her book. Even if you are an experienced quilter you will still get something out of it. If you are a beginner I would highly recommend for you to look over this book and read it from cover to cover you will get a lot out of it. Especially if you never quilted before!

What I do love about this book is that Elizabeth has taken the teaching, tools, and techniques section and divided it half. The first half deals with all you need to know to get started. The second half after all the projects in the book are about all you need to know after you have finished making your quilt top.

A few more extra things about this book is that Elizabeth offers on most projects a queen size option in case you want to make a quilt bigger.

Fabrics: A mix of yardage and precuts.

Tips and helpful advice though out the book: Yes!

Over all objective: Making sure your build your skills and becoming a confident quilter in the process of it all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Becoming A Confident Quilter 6 May 2014
By Addie D. Anglin - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be what I needed in quilting and sewing. The explanations on thread usage, type, needles, selecting fabrics, etc were given in detailed segments. I am a visual person but in reading this book I was able to understand and follow the instructions for one of the patterns without any problem.
