I am so happy to share with you her first book - available now - Becoming a Confident Quilter.
Now yes, I agree there are a million "intro to quilting" books out there. And many of them contain similar information on getting started with a quilting hobby. What is different about this book, is that Becoming a Confident Quilter is the first primer I have seen that schools you in modern quilting.
What's the difference, you ask? Elizabeth's chatty and casual explanations help guide and inform those interested in using today's fun, bold, and sometimes solid prints. Using these fabrics is very different from instructing someone interested in using traditional calicos and reproductions.
All the basics are in here: choosing fabrics, building a stash, needed supplies, rotary cutting, piecing pressing, and finishing a quilt.
Included in the book Becoming a Confident Quilter are 14 skill builder patterns, each one successively more difficult. The patterns focus on mastering basic quilting skills like the scant 1/4" seam, basic building blocks like half-square triangles, flying geese, etc, even instructions to piece an improv quilt and one paper pieced quilt pattern. That's the full gambit!
Here's my fav from the book called Less is More.
If you're in the market for an all-inclusive modern quilting primer, be sure to pick this one up or put it on your Christmas list. :)
