Book Description:

For those who want to fashion their own unique quilted creations, this complete course explains what is needed to get started, how to master all the key quilting techniques, and how to design patterns. With step-by-step, illustrated instructions and photographs of the process, this volume offers everything the beginner needs to learn to sew beautiful, heirloom-quality quilts.

From Library Journal:

For most Americans, quilting is synonymous with the classic patchwork quilt, a layer of batting sandwiched between two fabrics and quilted with small, straight stitches forming patterns in relief. Experienced quilters, however, know that quilting is a much richer and more varied technique. It also includes contour quilting on printed fabrics, traditional whole cloth quilting, shadow quilting, and trapunto, as well as corded and Japanese sashiko quilting. Lawther covers all these techniques in this well-organized self-study guide. Her project-oriented approach begins with the simplest forms of quilting and progresses to the most complex, including progressively challenging designs to illustrate each technique. Material on sources of inspiration for quilting and on planning a quilt make this volume suitable for both beginning and intermediate quilters. Recommended for needlecraft collections.
