Start to Learn Patchwork & Quilting

It has already been years ago I was interested in patchwork and quilting, but never had a way to learn as a beginner.
No one of my friends here could quilt so I would be glad if some of you that already expert in quilting give me some suggestion.
Yesterday I was looking for a patchwork & quilting book for a beginner at a bookstore and I found this.

Take a look at those steps...

Is this a good book for a beginner (that could only sew straight lines :) ? Thank you so much for all your comments. I really appreciate it.


  1. You are talented! Amazing creand nice artworks!

  2. I have quilted and from what I can see this book looks like a nice simple start... I am going to see if I can find the books I started with... It has been awhile since I quilted anything. I am sure you would do a great job:)

  3. Henny, I am so excited to see some of your patchwork quilting!

    My grandma taught me the basics when I was little, thanks for the reminder!

  4. Welles,
    thanks for visiting:)

    ok..I'll wait the scanned pages from your old quilting book. Thanks!

    The Yellow DP,
    oh..that's only from the book I scanned. I haven't made a quilt yet. I would love to see your first quilt :)

  5. Hi Henny, Thanks for visiting my blog! After looking at the book you purchased, this seems like a great place to begin quilting. My best advice is to keep it simple. Start with a simple pattern with no points to piece together as your 1st quilt top and you should not have any problems. If you can sew a straight line you can do this!! I can't wait to see what you come up with....Good Luck!

  6. Thanks for the comment on my blog as well! :)
