Beginner patterns - with a difference
Ten step by step patterns designed to help you create quilts you never dreamed possible - even a Mariners' Compass
Amazing detail
More than 600 color photos and drawings clearly demonstrate every hand technique
Back to basics - then far beyond
From drafting patterns to designing pieced borders, you will quickly master skills that give you the freedom to create
Absolute precision - and surprising speed
No method matches the accuracy of hand piecing, and, since you can sew on-the-go, you'll be delighted how much you accomplish in "found" moments.
"We quilt for so many reasons - to escape the stresses of life, to create something beautiful to cherish, or to make a gift for future generations. Yet for me the greatest joy comes from those quiet moments every quilter knows. This is time that is my own, when I can relax, reflect, and gently sew my memories into cloth." - Jinny Beyer
