Description

* Well-chosen beginning projects develop your quilting skills without requiring a long time to complete * Expert advice on choosing fabric, batting, backing, thread, and quilt designs * Complete instructions and photos for creating a pot holder, tote bag, pillow cover, and table runner Generations of family members have handed down quilts that have become family heirlooms. Quilting is a wonderful way to recycle old fabrics to create new, beautiful, and useful items, and Basic Quilting is the perfect introduction to this long-treasured craft. The book begins with a comprehensive description of the materials and equipment the new quilter needs, and clear instructions on basic knots and stitches, all illustrated with step-by-step full-color photos. Includes background on how to match and care for quilting fabrics, and choosing the block pattern, piecing, and quilting establish the techniques a new quilter needs.
