Not really for absolute beginners
on 18 March 2012
I have a sewing machine and a lot of fabric and I love patchwork quilts, and have always fancied making one, but I have no idea how to make them and I have very limited sewing skills. I searched for a book that would teach me how to make a patchwork quilt from scratch and got this one based on the reviews.
Don't get me wrong, this is a lovely book, well laid out, lots of images and suggestions, but I did not find out HOW to start off if you have absolutely no idea whatsoever. Ie....how big should I make the little squares? I think this is better aimed at people with some experience, but I can see that it is a quality book - and hopefully it will be of use to me one day, but for now I am looking for an idiots guide.
