Product Details


Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The experts at two quilting magazines have put together a thorough and vividly illustrated guide to all aspects of the craft for active, experienced quilters. Divided into seven sections, the book considers such topics as fabric, patterns and tools-even the "language" of quilting-and offers pictorial tours of quilters' workshops as well as full-page examples of classic quilt designs (e.g., the sampler, the mariner's compass and the album quilts). The largest section, organized alphabetically, encourages browsing by topic (from Applique Basics to Zigzag Set), and explores matters of color theory, quilt appraisal and design problems. Crammed as it is with illustrations, photographs, mini-essays and advice-but lacking a thorough table of contents or an index-this book is somewhat difficult to navigate; readers may find themselves flipping pages repeatedly to find a favorite piece. But the contributors cover everything from thread basics to pattern copyrights in inspiring and clearly written articles, framed by bright photos of piecing diagrams, tricks, tools and hundreds of beautiful fabric samples. While probably overwhelming for beginners, this is an important and motivating addition to any quilter's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners! Oct. 3 2002
By Carolyn
Format:Hardcover
I just started quilting about 6 months ago (I've sewn for a few years) and the terminology was killing me! I'd hear conflicting advice and definitions. This book is wonderful. It explains the common terminology and gives tips that are easy to follow. The design and color selection pages are easy to understand and give a good basis for designing your own projects. I think even experienced quilters could learn from this book. Great stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for beginners March 28 2005
By R. Grainer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This was the first quilting book that I checked out from the library when I started thinking about quilting. I liked it so much, that I ended up buying it. I just couldn't imagine not having it by my side when I had questions (and as a beginning quilter, I have a LOT of questions!!). This is a great book with a lot of information in it. There is only one other book that I think is just as good and that is _The Quilters' Ultimate Visual Guide._ Both books have many color pictures and explain things very clearly. If I could only have two books on basic quilting information, I would pick these two. Enjoy!

I had borrowed this book from the local library and could tell straight away that this would tell me everything I needed to know about quilting. I also checked out all the positive reviews on the Amazon website. Just read the contents, and everything is categorized with lots of images. I am sure this will be a well-used reference book for both new and experienced quilters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resouce Aug. 23 2007
By C. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is very well done. Even a seasoned quilter can pick up tips or revist information they learned years ago and find useful information. I like the books format, the pictures and illustrations are helpful and clear. I'd consider this to be along the lines of a quilter's encyclopedia.

I use the internet a great deal and it's really nice to come across a 'book' that is so well done & have it on hand in my art room. Nicely done. CJ
