A comprehensive guide for making a quilt. — Review by Annette Mira-Bateman
Overall Rating
This book (also available in e-book format) is the entire pattern for a very attractive quilt by Diane Califano.

There are a variety of techniques involved and several different blocks and borders in this quilt which measures 100 inches x 100 inches.

This project covers the whole quilt-making process. You'll be able to make any quilt after you work through this one.

Diane's advice starts with her workroom, type of cotton and needles used, and covers all techniques and colour selection. The finished quilt is lovely; you'll be proud of the end result.

Beginners or accomplished quilters will all find advice and inspiration in this book. The explanations, photos and diagrams very clearly show the entire construction process. The book covers Log Cabin blocks, Pinwheel and Flying Geese (2 methods).

Also Twelve Triangles Block and the central applique using several different methods.

The information is set out very clearly to suit all levels of quilter. There is also advice on quilting and binding.

In short, a comprehensive guide for making a quilt. (Posted on 8/4/16)
Great Basic Quilting Book! — Review by Patty
Overall Rating
This book can be used to make the quilt shown in the book or use it as a technique guide for every step of quilt making, from selecting needles and fabrics all the way to quilting and binding your quilt. Detailed instructions are included for making all the blocks needed in the cover quilt, such as the log cabin block, flying geese block, pinwheel block, and even the raw edge applique block.
