Reviews for Practical Guide to Patchwork
excellent for beginners
Elizabeth Hartman has written an excellent book for quilting beginners. As in her blog, the writing in The Practical Guide to Patchwork: New Basics for the Modern Quiltmaker is friendly, the instructions clear and she makes it look achievable - an important point since quilting can be intimidating in so many ways.
Hartman covers the basics of patchwork and quilting very succinctly, giving instructions and suggestions for materials, tools, fabric choices, color combinations, adjusting pattern sizes, and quilting and binding of course. I love her fabric choices and the fresh and modern designs of the quilts. But since most of the quilt patterns in this book are catered to beginners, with a couple for intermediate sewers, they are mostly quite simple. While appealing, they are not as fun or exciting as some of the works you can see on her blog.
If you're an experienced quilter, this book may not appeal to you as you're unlikely to learn much from it. But for beginners, there's much here to help you get started or gain confidence in your skills in making quilts. by liberal sprinkles
