If you’re a beginning quilter, or someone who wants to encourage a beginning quilter, don't miss out on this inspiring book… it's the perfect time to try a new hobby!

Jo Avery’s New Patchwork & Quilting Basics is an awesome handbook for beginners, with advice and instruction on all aspects of making quilts, informed by her years as a teacher and fabric shop owner in Edinburgh, Scotland. In addition to basic how-to information, Jo has created 12 new projects to guide quilters from introductory skills through more advanced sewing.

Start with fabric strips and squares, as in Jo’s Semaphore Crib Quilt:

And confidently stitch your way through to the more complex Bedding Plants Quilt

…with lots of fun learning opportunities in between. Even more experienced quilters will love these fresh projects!
