This has been an invaluable tool. I had never made a quilt before. I've finished my first and used this book at each stage. It has clear instructions and lots of useful tips. I'd totally recommend it.

The instructions are clearly set out with useful diagrams to help. It's good to have not only tips but also things to avoid. It would be a useful book to start reading before you actually start your chosen project.

Format: Paperback
I was disappointed with this book as I am a beginner at making quilts. I had hoped that it would guide me from beginning to end in making my first quilt.
I think this book will be more useful to me when I gain more knowledge from my Quilt Making Class

I know (or knew) nada about quilting and have been trying to learn out of various books.
This one pointed out the obvious (not to me !) and saved me a lot of mistakes, especially with machine quilting. well worth the money, I'm looking forward to trying one of the projects in the book very soon.

I bought this book before I ever attempted a quilt and I must say at first it almost put me off quilting anything at all!! There is so much information in this book that it is quite daunting at first. After weeks of having pieced and basted and unpicked and re-stitched I am glad that I have this book as it is a great reference tool. If like me (a bit of a numpty) you have difficulties following long instructions and prefer to get stuck in then I think that the book definitely made more sense once I had the practical experience and was able to work stuff out with the quilt in front of me. The patterns contained in the book are probably on the more traditional side - so maybe not relevant for everyone. All in all a great book that you can just pick up and look up whatever you need to know.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book for myself several years ago and have referred to it over many projects. I have lent it to many friends, we have all found it very easy and enjoyable to read. There are lots of tips to speed sewing up and helpful warnings of pitfalls. My daughter in law has just started quilting and I knew this was a really good book to begin with.
