Jeanette White and her daughter-in-law Erin Hamilton are partners in everything quilting. For fifteen years they ran the successful quilt shop Piper's Quilts & Comforts in Salt Lake City, which they closed in 2015 to focus on the creative aspect of the industry. They currently design patterns under the name Piper's Girls.
Skill building quilting in a row is designed to take you from beginner to expert. Each row involves different skills and techniques. Sometimes piecing a quilt can become a little monotonous or even boring - with this method, you stay involved and interested because you are doing different things each row. After tools and basic techniques, this book gets down to business, presenting 11 fun rows to quilt. Each row has full instructions and pictures. All the skills are seen in box, for example "using the 45 Degreesangle on a ruler", or "accurate cutting". You'll learn too many techniques and skills to mention in detail but amongst them are Dresden Plates, Pinwheels, Paper Piecing, On Point, Flying Geese, Machine and Reverse Applique, Sashing, Borders and Finishing. There are also two bonus quilt designs. Great skill builder and a lot of scope for injecting your own ideas.-- Karen Platt * www.karenplatt.co.uk *
