Quiltmaking Essentials 1: Cutting and Piecing Skills by Donna Lynn Thomas
This is the PERFECT book for beginning quilters – I was pleased to find something so basic available for people who just want to learn how to make quilts on their own or for those who want to know the basics before having to do so in front of or with others. Donna gives detailed instructions of the many aspects of quilt making.
Table of Contents
Parts of a quilt (so you know what quilters are talking about!)
Short-Cuts (also known as “tricks” of the trade)
In this book you will learn about fabric preparation, rotary cutting, block construction, etc. If you already know how to do these, don’t bother with buying it for yourself. Buy it for someone you want to learn how to make quilts with you! You can find it here.
