I should probably hold off on rating this until I actually make a quilt, and see how well the quilt turns out. But anyway, Jenny Knode learned to quilt from this book, and turned out to be an excellent quilter, so I read it too! And I've finally actually read the whole thing.

I'll let you know how my quilt turns out!

Fantastic book with easy to follow instructions, diagrams and photographs. This seems like a valuable reference that any quilter would want to keep around to refer back to when needed.

My quilting class used this book to teach us beginning quilting. Very easy to read with lots of pictures. We made a 3x3 foot baby quilt as our first one!
