Quilting Basics - Michael Caputo
Discover how to make beautiful quilts, even if you're a complete beginner, as Michael Caputo takes you through all the different techniques of quilting.
The book includes 12 workshops and 12 projects for you to complete. The basics of quilting are covered first - tools and equipment, suitable fabrics and fabric cuts, batting and threads, colour theory, fabric preparation and binding.
The twelve workshops build into a complete quilting course starting with basic cutting and piecing and working all the way through to machine quilting.
Each workshop contents a step-by-step quilting project that allows you to put into practice what you have learnt so that by the end of the book you will have the confidence to tackle a wide range of quilting patterns and even design your own.
