5.0 out of 5 stars It makes you want to quilt 22 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent addition to the quilter's bookshelf. Ideal for the beginner and the expert. It is a follow on the Quilter's Academy One and builds on the lessons in that book. It is written so that everything is clearly explained and set out. the tone is that of a good teacher keen to see the student do well but also understanding that the readers will have different levels of knowledge and expertise. I cannot recommend it highly enough

Clear precise instructions. This book keeps me on track and I am able to develop my quilting skills and expand my knowledge of the terminology that is the language of quilting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pick up the piecing 27 Dec 2012
By lhs42
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not only does HH teach you how to piece, she teaches you how to figure out things for yourself. This is what I wanted from a patchwork class, to learn a skill, not how to make a particular project.

5.0 out of 5 stars I learned a lot from this book 30 May 2010
By A. Bish - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for someone who isn't brand new to quilting, but doesn't feel ready for anything too hard. It is very thorough. I also feel like after working through volume 1 and volume 2 I won't be a slave to the pattern and will be able to think for myself and maybe alter or design a quilt pattern without fear. I'm looking forward to future volumes in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Building your quilting skills 13 Aug 2010
By J. Potere - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I believe that the class 210 and 220 in this book are a bit of a repeat of the information in the Freshman Year book, but it bears repeating. After those classes this book improves on the Freshman Year skills and shows you how to set on point, setting triangles, adding sashing, planning diagonal sets, bar sets, zigzag sets and more. I definitely recommend this book to anyone that doesn't have a teacher and is learning to quilt from books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quilter's Academy - Harriet Hargrave Courses 23 Sep 2010
By Sandy B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Harriet Hargrave is a wonderful instructor who believes in teaching the basics first, not just "fast". In this series of books, Harriet follows along with her actual classroom courses. After taking her "Freshman Year" class, using Volume 1 of the series, I was hooked. This is a must for serious quilters who want to expand their skills with beautiful results. Remember to start with Volume 1 & you'll find yourself creating precise blocks, accurately cut & pieced, to produce quilts that lay flat, with seams that match & much less wasted time & fabric. You will be very happy with your creations.
Volume 2 - Sophomore year takes you to the next step, with more complicated blocks & more challenging patterns. I can't wait to take another class when she visits CA in 2011! In the meantime, I'm increasing my skills & creating quilts that I never thought I could make

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Information... 10 Feb 2011
By SewCrazy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased Volume 1 as well and have Volume 3 on reserve...this is a good resource set, explains the basics of quilt making, from buying and preparing fabrics, how to determine good fabric from not so good, tips on rulers and other supplies and even included some yardage charts for easier figuring. The designs of the quilts are not my style, but the information is good and can be applied to other patterns as well. If you are a beginner, I highly recommend, if you are an average quilter, this book can offer a few tips, we never get so good that we can't learn more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quilter's Academy Vol. 2-- Sophmore Year: A Skill Building Course in Quilt Making 16 Oct 2010
By S. Weiser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My small quilt guild is nearly finished with Vol. 1. Each month one of our members presents a section to the group. Even our long time quilters say they learn something new each time. We start Vol. 2 in January and hope to complete all four volumes and graduate. Harriet Hargrave actually lives in the Denver area and owns a quilt shop here. Having met her several times, I was sure these books would be a success. She's got loads of common sense and always looking for a better way to complete a project.Quilter's Academy Vol. 1--Freshman Year: A Skill-Building Course in Quiltmaking
