I am Susie from Kansas City MO area. I am fairly new to quilting. One of my daughters asked if I would make a quilt for her babies, so I did. Not sure I did much right with those quilts, but I did what I thought should be done. I have been sewing for over 40years and figured it couldn't be too hard. I have made about 10 quilts since that time but still not sure I am doing it "right".
I now know enough to say I don't know much about quilting.....I get the straight of grain, bias etc. I understand the 1/4" seam line.....what I dont know is how to square up a quilt/or a block. Tricks like measuring the center of the quilt to get the correct length for the borders are not in my knowledge bank.
I am looking for a good basic book that will tell me how to properly make a quilt. Any suggestions????
