Another book filled with "top tips and techniques for successful sewing", this time for quilting. I was instantly intrigued, because this is a book for beginners and improvers, and I haven't done much quilting and want to learn more.
Both patchwork and quilting techniques are covered in here, and the book starts off with what you need, plus a staged guide to various techniques. These include what stitches to use, making up the quilt "sandwich", and learning about different types of batting and machine feet and caring for quilted items. Interspersed between these chapters are ten projects for quilts of various sizes as well as a table runner, Christmas stocking, placemat and of course bags. Plenty of photographs and lots of handy tips make this a pretty foolproof way to learn these techniques, making what often seems a rather arcane and complex craft seem doable and fun.
You can learn traditional methods such as English paper piecing, trapunto and reverse quilting as well as making use of modern innovations such as bag hardware. Stitch using a machine or by hand and use up leftovers from other projects making smaller projects such as a pillowcase or lap quilt. Armed with my new knowledge, I now feel ready to have another go at patchwork and quilting. Another winning title by the talented Ms Shore.-- Rachel A Hyde * myshelf.com *
In her latest book, stitching superstar Debbie shares her expert tips and techniques for creating perfect quilts! Whether you're a beginner or an expert stitcher, you'll be inspired by her practical advice and gorgeous projects to help develop your skills in easy-to-follow steps.* Sew Magazine *
As always with Debbie Shore, this book is simple to understand and has great projects. This time she is talking quilting, with tips and techniques from the beginning to the end of your quilting project.
There are several projects, bags, table runners and of course a traditional quilt. You can use your scrap fabric for the smaller designs, but the 'Humbug Hexie Quilt', which is the last project, really does cry out for something special. It is beautiful.
The book begins with advice on tools, threads and fabric and continues with 'how to' on stashing, binding and sandwiching your projects. Each project features a written guide accompanied by step-by-step photography in full glossy colour. There are full-sized templates included to help you and I guarantee that your project will have a professional and beautiful finish.
I always recommend Debbie Shore, she is a perfect teacher for the beginner but also, the advanced stitcher will be able to use her expertise to revisit long forgotten techniques.-- Tracy Shephard * Postcard Reviews *
