This book includes planning color layout, selecting fabrics, making templates, marking fabric, cutting fabrics, tips for doing piecework, tips for doing applique, tools of the trade, quilting, sore fingers, needles and thimbles, removing spots, signing and dating quilts, and storing quilts and wall hangings.
The book is a bit out-dated, it's from 1992. Tips are mostly for hand-quilters. There is not a section or tips for machine quilters like me.
