Hi To All!
I have to tell you that through the years I have learned to quilt through books and friends and odd and ends but as a perfectionist ( I know, I know - I just am!) I wanted my blocks to be straighter, my points sharper, etc. you get my drift. Well, I stumbled across this fantastic book I just had to share with you!
It is by Harriet Hargrave who is a wonderfully talented quilter who has been teaching her art for over 30 years. She and her daughter Carrie are working on a series of books called Quilter's Academy. Volume 1 starts at the very beginning - a very good place to start (are any of you Sound of Music fans? If so, then you probably know the rest of the song) Sigh, I digress.
ANYWAY, this book is perfect if you are a beginner or a seasoned quilter - as for me I'm using it to go back to square one and unlearn my bad habits and re-learn so that I'm happier with my quilting!
Volume 2 is due out in a few weeks - can't wait to see what it tackles!
So check it out on Harriet's website www.harriethargrave.com and see all that she has to offer. One of Harriet's most popular books (and I highly recommend it) is Heirloom Machine Quilting.
If you ever get the chance to take a class by her, go for it! And let me know how it goes! Happy Sewing!
