Hi:) Thought I'd try posting.  I'm new to quilting, just a newbie at this. Finding some great info online and have a couple patterns although would also like to find a beginners quilt book.  Also wanting to create an applique quilt later.   I don't have a sewing machine yet, so looking for info geared more toward quilting by hand.  If you might have a book or several that would be ideal for a beginner, please let me know. Or if you have any recommendations for a particular book--I would appreciate that also and see if I can track a copy down somewhere:)  --Thanks

This is the book that I used to learn how to quilt. I don't remember much specifically geared towards hand quilting but it has a number of the basics that is applicable to both.
