Start Quilting is truly a wonderful book for beginners! Alex clearly introduces the novice to the quilting world. She explains that a quilt is like a sandwich with three layers. Her language is simple and to the point. She introduces seven different quilt blocks that have the shapes that quilters work with the most. She shows the tools that you'll need and explains how they are used and how to choose your fabrics and prepare the fabric for sewing. The pictures in the book are well done and large enough to see clearly.
Alex teaches you to do seven different blocks. You can make a quilt using just a single design like the log cabin block or the friendship star block. Or you can also make a sampler quilt where each bock is different.
This is a great book to share with anyone who wants to learn to quilt!
