Quilting 101 is a modern-day primer on the basic skills and techniques of quilting. This book is geared toward the absolute novice and assumes you know little or nothing about the crafts of sewing or quilting. Filled with lots of step-by-step photos, useful quilting tip sidebars, and a detailed glossary, Quilting 101 teaches you how to quilt successfully, even if you have never sewn before. You will learn terminology used regularly in quilting as well as all the basic skills that are the building blocks of the art. From threading the machine and sewing a straight stitch, this book expertly leads you every step of the way to completing more than twenty different quilted projects. The first section includes such topics as: the sewing machine and its accessories, sewing and quilting supplies and how to use them, how to shop for, prepare and cut fabrics, as well as a detailed look at every step of the quilting process. New skills are taught via the creation of an actual quilted project, such as a pillow, placemats, wall hanging or lap quilt, thereby allowing you to learn a new skill and create a useful item for yourself or a friend. Now even non-sewers can become confident quilters!'

User Review  - Leslie Hickman - Goodreads

Nice basic book. I did the sewing machine cover. I added a top the same color of the sides of 6 inches before seam allowance for it to fit my larger machine. Like a dream, very easy directions & it looks like it was hard! Love it! Read full review
