Computerized Quilting Now Available (25 Oct 2014)

My IntelliQuilter (IQ) system has been installed, tested, and works perfectly. I couldn't be more excited. I love the precision and beautiful stitches. Orders received in November will receive a 10% discount on long arm quilting services. This includes pantograph and custom quilting. It's a great time to get those Christmas quilts done before the rush hits.

I've been sewing (at a beginners level) for a few years, but now I would like to start making quilts. Can anyone give me any suggestions on a book that will help me learn the basics for quilting? Thanks.

I've got two great books I recommend.

1. Quilter's Academy, Volume 1 - Freshman Year by Harriet Hargrave
2. Your First Quilt Book (or it should be!) by Carol Doak (BTW - the or it should be part is really in the title of the book).

There are a ton of good beginning quilting books out there. Many of them get you started on projects right away. If you learn by doing, that's not a bad way to start, but if you want to go beyond projects, I recommend you get a couple books that teach the basics behind the techniques needed for quilting.

Also, if you happen to be in the San Diego area, I'm starting a beginning quilting class at the El Cajon Sew & Vac store on the third Sunday of the month from 1:00 - 4:00 beginning in February 2014. The first class (Feb 2014) is FREE. Hope to see you there. You can get more information about my classes by looking at another post under Quilting Chatter.
