I am a beginning quilter and can heartily recommend this book to those in the same boat. It is concise, well-written, and informative beyond belief. Even if I weren't a quilter, I think I'd find myself wrapped up in this book! If you're a hand quilter, save your pennies up and buy this book!

As one who is always trying to better her hand quilting, my eye was immediately drawn to this title in my local quilting store. The clerk said that the store's most esteemed hand quilter loved the book, and so, as a splurge, I purchased it. I would have to say that this is now the most treasured book in my quilting books collection. I have never read any book more thorough on hand quilting. Although I love Ami Simms' book, and learned to hand quilt through it first, this one goes above and beyond the other. McElroy garners a firm confidence from her reader, establishing again and again that she has done her research from every possible angle on every aspect of hand quilting. I learned so much about needles, frames, fabric, pens, pencils, fabrics, thimbles, and stencils from this book! She is even willing to go as far as to rate different products from each of the aforementioned categories (and more), according to her research (which goes from chiropractors to chemists to needle factories in Britain). I could not possibly give this book a higher rating!

I purchased this very recently and I cannot praise it enough. For hand quilters it contains a huge amount of very useful information which is presented in a very easy to read style. I found the different chapters dealing with subjects such as batting, needles, thread count illuminating. I didn't like the start of each chapter being peppered with large blue words, but overlooked this minor irritation as the knowledge gained from reading this book will be so valuable to me as a novice hand quilter. I have purchased many books on hand quilting and have borrowed as many as our library has on the subject. All I can say is, if you are starting out hand quilting I think that this is the only book you would ever need to purchase on the subject. So buy this one first and save yourself some money. (You can always use the money saved to purchase extra fabric!)

I enjoyed this book for it's detail of the different quilting subjects covered. I was impressed with the degree Ms. McElroy went to to make quilting all it can be. Her research and experience was very valuable me. I enjoyed the way she was able to break down the techniques so that even I could understand and gain some mastery over my quilting. I would definitely recommend this book for a beginner or even a more experience quilter. I have learned a lot.

This is the best book that I have ever come across for close up clear photographs showing the quilting stitch. Also Roxanne's advice on needles - yes some are much better than others! Which marking pens to avoid and what to mark with instead, plus a whole hoast of other information that I would not even have thought of, makes this book a hard act to follow.
