Description

When I started to quilt, there were quilts I wanted to make, and things I wanted to try, but I was intimidated. There was no way I could match points, make perfect half square triangles, not to mention curved piecing, inset seams, or foundation paper piecing. So scary! But as I learned new skills and tried new things, none of the skills was as scary as I had thought. I could do it! And you can too!

You Can Quilt! will guide you, step by step, through 12 different quilting skills. We start with basic cutting and sewing 1/4" seams, and progress through flying geese units, improvisational piecing, curved piecing and so much more. The Absolutely Unique thing about this book is that you get to practice each skill set by making 3 different quilt blocks. The blocks increase in difficulty - very easy, medium, and challenging - and often use different techniques to make the same shapes. For example, we show 3 different ways to make half square triangles. After trying each one, you can decide which method works best for you. We want to give you options and empower you, so you can go and make the quilts of your dreams!

You Can Quilt! contains 144 pages of instruction, patterns for 36 quilt blocks, a glossary, and index, plus a CD containing printable templates, a bonus block pattern, quilt gallery and setting instructions for the cover quilt. This is so much more than you normally get for a quilt book of this price. (Honestly, our editor was a bit upset that it was so long. Eek!)

Piecing the You Can Quilt! Sampler is a fun and upbeat way to overcome fears and learn new skills. You Can Quilt! and you can have fun doing it!

"In the spirit of Rosie the Riveter's can-do attitude, authors Gardunia and Oddie have teamed up to present the ultimate beginner's handbook! Sew 36 quilt blocks with ideas and methods for setting the blocks into a quilt. Step-by-step instructions begin with explaining the basics of color choice and 1/4 inch seams. If you have never pieced a quilt before or have only a beginning knowledge base, this book is essential. Each chapter offers three block patterns increasing in difficulty--easy, medium, and challenging-- with the goal of learning a skill and then practicing various adaptions to improve your technique. Chapters include every facet the new quilter needs to know: half-square triangles, quarter-square triangles, Flying Geese, wonky piecing, improvisation, foundation paper piecing, curves, one-patch blocks, applique, inset seams, hexies, and even the Compass and Feathered Star! Quilt finishing instructions are included as well." (Official AQS Description)
