The Complete Book of Quilting is the ultimate guide to both machine and hand quilting, as well as patchwork and applique. Starting with a brief history of quiltmaking traditions, it moves on to cover all the basics, including choosing fabric, color ...
and design, tools and equipment, making templates, cutting, stitching and pressing. The following chapters cover patchwork, applique and quilting in detail, with 40 techniques carefully described and illustrated with step-by-step sample blocks. The sixth chapter shows how to make up a quilt, with a selection of the different technique blocks made up into a traditional sampler quilt. The final chapter covers methods of care and display, and also has a glossary of quilting terms. Truely inspiring, but also very practical and reliable, The Complete Book of Quilting will quickly become the one book that every quilter needs.
