"Even if you are a beginner, you will soon find yourself quilting like an expert by following these clearly drawn patterns, photographs, and step-by-step instructions.

You learn how to plan the quilt, the number of blocks to fit a bed, how to select the pattern to harmonize with the design and color of the room and how to choose materials. You are told how to cut, sew, make appliqueed patterns, patchwork and strips. An entire chapter on design discusses basic elements, sources, making your own designs, avoiding sewing problems, how to use the rag bag, and much more, while the section on patterns gives directions on tracing, seam allowance, and estimating quantity. There is full information on borders, quilting and tufting, and just about every other aspect of quilt making."

Not as complete as I thought it might be, compared with other quilting books that I have.

Not really what I thought it would be. Few pictures, nothing in color but the cover.
