Row, row, row your... quilt! Sandy Cressler's expert notes and tips will lead you to quilting success.
+ Make 11 rows presented in order of difficulty - so your skills grow with your quilt!
+ Practice prairie points, chain piecing, flying geese, reverse applique, paper piecing, and much more.
Dresden plates, pinwheel blocks, and flying geese. Starting with the simplest patchwork squares and working your way up to more challenging applique and paper piecing, you'll sew through a cheery, 11-row sampler quilt and 2 bonus projects. Build 25 specific quilting skills such as getting an accurate 1/4in seam, constructing on-point squares, and using the 45 degree angle on a ruler.
