    Book details


This book is incredibly helpful for the quilter. I love the introduction. It explains so well the frustration that the "math of quilting" can give to the artist. The introduction reads: "The joys of making a quilt include dreaming up a design or choosing a pattern and colors, collecting the fabrics, sewing and watching it grow, and finally, peacefully quilting it. One step in making a quilt is not so joyful-the arithmetic neccessary for planning its specifications and figuring yardage. Since this step must be taken before construction begins, sometimes it dampens one's enthusiasm for the project...We wrote this book to encourage more quiltmaking. We wanted to provide people with the help they need to skip the arithmetic and get on with the fun of fabric selection and sewing. More people will finish more quilts, we believe, if they don't have to bother first with the figuring of inches, feet, and yards." This book is a gem.

    I love patchwork but hate the MATH! Bought two copies and kept one, gave the other to a friend. She loves it and so do I.

    My favorite go-to source when figuring sizes. Probably the mist used book in my quilting library.

    This should be in everyone's sewing room. Gives you every kind of measurement for any size of quilt and more.
