I keep delving into it and can't put it down for long. The instructions are clear and concise and the pictures are an inspiration.
This is a really amazing book.I've been looking for a comprehensive book covering all sorts of patchwork and quilting techniques and this one has it all.There are so many techniques covered and all illustrated by great diagrams and lovely quilt pictures.Lots of samples have been stitched too,to show how something is done.
The whole book is really colorful and inviting and written in an easy but logical style that is a pleasure to read.The author's love of quilting really shines through and she has included so many ideas i can't wait to try.This is going to be a book I will use again and again and I can't recommend it highly enough.
So I bought this book - and it is fantastic. It is set out in a very logical way; it explains things so clearly, with plenty of photos and illustrations; and it's pretty inspirational too (as well as some lovely quilt photos, it covered several types of applique that were new to me at least). It's also very readable - it must be the first reference book that I have actually read in one sitting from cover to cover.
If you're new to patchwork, applique and quilting, this is the book you are looking for.
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.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in quilting. Inspirational!

This is indeed a very good book, comprehensive and very detailed. It is not, in my opinion, a book for beginners, but I don't consider it a flaw. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Giulia S.
